That's really strange that that is happening.  With an ethernet connection the internet should be shared evenly between the two.  What is the speed of your internet?  Also, you may want to go into your modems settings and double check the settings there.  Contact Sky to find out how to do this.

Hi,

 

Some routers support a feature called QoS (Quality of Service) that let you configure which traffic should take priority, what is the exact make/model of your router?

 

Edit: Apologies I didn't see that you were with Sky, Hmmm I don't believe their bundled routers support QoS, you could look putting software on the laptop to limit how much of your connection it can take up, search on the net for Netlimiter (or similar )
