Sounds like your wireless router is being overwhelmed by the number of simultaneous network connections beyond its capacity. Turn off those other wireless devices not necessary for game play and see if this improves the condition.

Even conventional routers can be overwhelmed by too many simultaneous network connections. And were not talking about the the number of computers connected to the box. Were talking about the number of connections the computers are making to the Internet...

The STO Client is known to bring low end routers to their knees with the number of simultaneous network connections that it makes. So like I said, try turning off the other computers, and running networked applications unnecessary for STO play. You can also disable the built in voice chat of the STO Client, and see if the reduced number of network connections helps your situation...

But the STO Client isn't running on your router. The only way the STO Client can bring down the router is if the router isn't up to the task on dealing with the generated network load...

And saying that you can play other games without issues is not relevant to your STO problem, as other games don't generate anywhere near the network load that STO does...
