We run an ADSL modem/wireless router. So wifi for most devices but the DVD with apps(Netflix etc) is wired in. We run 2 computers, kindles, phones all at the same time and don't experience many problems speed wise or freezing up. My DSL service is 8mbps. Not incredibly fast but as long as the network connection is good it works without issues.
Computer speed/freezing up is usually a computer problem. Slow page loading is a network speed problem.
Quite difficult matters can be explained even to a slow-witted man, if only he has not already adopted a wrong opinion about them; but the simplest things cannot be made clear even to a very intelligent man if he is firmly persuaded that he already knows, and knows indubitably, the truth of the matter under consideration. -Leo Tolstoy

No affect on freezing. Your downloads will be slower as there are two PCs using the same bandwidth

Unless you are streaming videos or have a low bandwidth connection you will notice little difference. We have three computers and all of our wireless devices running through our wifi at home.
We never have a bandwidth issue.

I have 100 MBPS so I thought I should not be having a problem. I don't know whether to get away from Windows XP or go for a new computer. Windows 8 is almost half of what a new tower would cost. that is all I need. d2 :)

I use googles chrome browser, but had been using Firefox for a long time. Both are much less junk ridden browsers and less risk than Internet Explorer.

They can all tie up bandwidth depending on what they are doing.  Now that everyone has a smartphone and there are several X-boxes and I don't know how many laptops and a couple of apple TV boxes... I'd guess there are over 30 devices on my wireless router...

As per me, you should take help from any technical support service provides for your multiple computers, because they are the PC expert and they solve your any issues easily. Personally I suggest some reliable technical support service provides name such as Geek Squad, Click4Support, iyogi, etc.

If your going to use more than one computer I'd also utilize a service such as Google Drive or OneDrive so you can access your files from either computer. I wrote an article on this, but as the new guy I hesitate to post it.
