A little more info would be helpful.

Such as, who makes it, how is it connected, the list goes on.

That is weird but it is possible that they are interfering with each other. Do you have to use USB for your wireless lan?

You could buy a wireless PCI card that would free up your usb ports. I prefer the PCi method over USB anyway.

As I mentioned earlier, purchase a PCI wireless card. They are not that expensive and will probably solve your problem.
