Problem when doing a backup

Hi.I have windows 7 home premium desktop this is connected to the router with an Ethernet cable.
Now the problem is when I start to do my backups I connect the external HDD using a docking station with an usb cable and the mains cable.Then when I start to backup the internet connections drops out,So there is no internet to this desktop.
Does anyone have this situation or known of any solutions,So now before I start a backup I remove the Ethernet cable from the desktop.
Any Help Please.
Thanks.

PS.Forgot to say that I use Microsoft Toy for backups.Also tried syncbackup same problem.

I'm guessing Windows Backup and Restore. Are you locked into that to the exclusion of any other similar tool?

I've never heard of that problem, but anything is possible with the Windows tool.

Thanks for reply.
The backups I make are documents photos etc that are on a second internal drive,The C drive is only for the operating system and programs.
So my backups are from the second internal to an external hard drive.Been having this issue for some time the only way I overcome it is to disconnect the ethernet cable from pc while doing backups.
It's very strange.
Thanks.

If you mean what software I used for the backup.It's the Microsoft SyncToy 2.
