Mac mini robs the wifi!

I do not know how to explain this but as soon as my mac mini goes online all my other devices: windows laptop, Apple iphone etc cannot access the web. they can ping addresses but the HTTP layer does not work. It requires a reboot of the router.

All my devices have unique ip addresses. they are reused over and over.

All the devices are on the WIFI segment and I do not have identical open on any of them.

I have seen a discussion on the official apple forum but without a solution posted.

I have a 2012 mini running mountain goat 10.8.2

thank you

An overview of your entire networking setup would be required for anyone to begin to figure this out.
