I'm not sure if there is a way to fix that. Since both the computer and the Xbox use the internet, there isn't enough for both of them to run at the same time. Sorry man.

Network keeps on crashing


Try turning QOS off on your router. Generally, with home routers, QOS causes issues. What are your download and upload speeds? If you don't know you can go to speedtest.net and it will tell you. If turning off QOS doesn't resolve your issue and you have decent Upload/Download Speeds (3mbps/20mbps or higher) then your best bet would be to replace your wireless router.

Bad xbox 360 connection


You have two options to improve connectivity:

1) Move your XBox closer to the router. If you are connecting wirelessly, move your XBox as close as possible to your router. The farther away they are, the slower your connection speed.

2) Purchase an ethernet cable and plug it in. An ethernet cable can connect to your router and be plugged into the back of your XBox. This is the best way to utilize as much juice as possible from your router and get you the connection speeds you need to play online. Ethernet cables run about $20 depending on the length and quality, but its a great investment if you are doing a lot of online gaming.

Hope that helps!

If other devices can connect once your son is off then it might not be a problem with a router. Try connecting the xbox VIA WI-FI. If the problem persits i would contact your ISP.

Can't play xbox 360 and have computer onlin on Netgear Router


1. If this is wireless I would try position the game box closer to the router or hard wire to the game box if possible.
2. You also may have a problem with bandwidth. The other computer is competing with your Xbox for bandwidth and the switch may not be able to supply it to both the device at the same time.
3. check if your router to see if you have QOS ( quality of service). Log into the router and check this feature to see if it is enabled.

I have a wireless router hooked to my computer & my son recently got a wireless-G USB adapter so that he can play his xbox 360 online. Will this work, or will we have to put the router on the xbox...


XBOX 360 will only work properly with a 'genuine' USB WIFI adapter designed specifically for it (and at an over inflated price IMO!).
One popular way to play 'network' via the internet is to connect the XBOX 360 to your PC via Ethernet cable and have the PC connecting to the internet either via another ethernet connection or more likely via a Wifi connection which could be via your USB adapter connected to your PC and talking to your Wifi Router)

Is your Xbox hard wired or wireless? If its wireless, try changing the broadcast channel (to like 11) your are probably getting interference. If its hard wired, you probably need to forward the port on that IP address for the Xbox

Can't pick up wireless internet through router


You need to have the specific wireless adapter made for the Xbox 360. It runs about $100. Other wireless adapters (for some reason) will not work. I tried 6 different ones before I gave up and hard wired the Xbox 360.

You will be fine either way. I prefer wireless because obviously no wires, but i have never seen any difference in speed with wired/wireless connections.
