wifi booster disconnects when I turn my laptop on

So my son has our main internet router in his bedroom hardwired to his gaming pc so I needed to get vm booster boxes to get wifi downstairs. I have set up the boxes and can connect to our phones and tv's downstairs and all works great until I turn my laptop on.  As soon as I turn my laptop on my booster box looses signal and as soon as I close the laptop it powers on again.  I rang vm and they said "your internet is working so you need new boosters, im now on my 3rd set of boosters and none make any difference. Any ideas how a laptop can disconnect the booster boxes?

Could be solved by getting your own router with 1Gb ports and the hub in modem mode.

Update the drivers for the WLAN card on the laptop?
