We have a netgear wireless router, when we get on the home PC everything is find, but just recently when my son gets on the xbox live we get booted off the home PC computer (no link to the enternet and it has been working find since December), we have called our internet provider and they say it is our router but when we call netgear they tell us that we are lucked to get 1-3 years of use out of the router. We bought this router a little over a year ago and it was the most expensive one you could get at that time and supposable the best and we even have 2 IP address just for the xbox live.....so could their be a problem with the router because when we do get "booted off" we have to disconnect the power to the router and rehook up...do we need a router or do we need to go and make sure the xbox is going off its IP address???

Re: Get booted off
Ok. i have the exact same problem, but i use linksys. I have has geeksquad and they dont know. I have only one option i havent tried. try to just hook up the modem to your router only. Buy a wireless adapter for your home computer. If it doesnt work, return it for a refund. I feel for you guys because i have been going through hell and it drives me crazy that even geeksquad doesnt know. (By the way dont buy that garbage when the people say you need a new router, because they just want more money.)

If this is the first time you have connected your Xbox 360 to Xbox Live, you will probably be prompted to apply an update. If there are no updates, the Xbox Live Connection page shows that you're connected to Xbox Live. Press the Y button on your controller to continue.
If testing the Xbox it says DNS failed, then update your NETGEAR router firmware:
From your computer, open an Internet Browser and navigate to http://kb.netgear.com to download the firmware for your router.
Log in to your NETGEAR router by browsing to http://www.routerlogin.net or http://www.routerlogin.com. Enter the username (admin) and password. By default, the password is password or 1234 unless it has already been changed.
Click Router Upgrade on the top left pane under Maintenance, browse for the firmware downloaded and click Upload.
Run the network tests from within the 360 menus - looking especially at the result for network address translation (NAT). If this is either limited or fail, you will need to change your router for one which is compatible with xbox live. Try xbox.com to work out which routers are recommended.
As far as your router kicking him when you connected your pc, then you must have altered the access permissions of the router maybe by accident.
If all else fails, turn off the pc, router, modem and 360. Find the reset button on your router and press/hold this for at least five seconds. Turn on the modem, then the router. Let that settle for a minute, then connect and setup 360 and laptop.
You need a excellent signal to your Xbox. Xbox requires a constant connection. My son as an Xbox and we had to run a wire connection to the Xbox no problems after that. Or you need to move your wireless router to the same room as your xbox to get a stronger connection.
In theory you should be able to "share" your internet connection. I use a Linksys WRT54GS wireless router and I have a Linksys Game adapter on my son's 360. He has not complained about lag or slow server times unless other intensive bandwidth is being used.
How Can I connect a network adapter from my room to downstairs about 20 yards away? I need XBOX LIVE badly, everyone has it cmon FIXYA help me out on this. The router downstairs is a TalkTalk modem help me!
