You don't say which model of Dongle you have nor have you said which operating systems you are using.

Is one of your PC's acting as a server or are they all peer to peer?

Is the PC with the two Network cards sharing the Internet connection to the other four pc's on the network and if so how.

Do you have a firewall in place

Really need more info have you checked the manufacturers' site for you dongle the faq section?

This would be a good place to start

Feel free to post more info and maybe you will get a better response.
