The problem I'm seeing is that our wireless connection cuts out about 5 minutes after turning on our main desktop. Turn off the main desktop and wireless begins to work again. Throughout all of this, the wired connection works fine, and I have no problem connecting to the router either. Any ideas what could be causing this?

Any chance your desktop has a bluetooth adapter installed? Some bluetooth adapters are known to cause WIFI coexistance issues.
