Why do I get kicked from xbox live games when someone turns on a computer at my house?

by on February 10, 2011

Q: whenever i am on xbox live playing games I always get kicked out of the game when someone turns on the computer in the house. I have my xbox connected to my router through a Ethernet cord, but my laptop has a wireless connection. whenever the laptop gets turned on it automatically connects to the network, internet, and my xbox game is always interrupted and i get kicked. please help.

    What is the make and model of your router?

      it is a att 2wire 2701hg-b. also to add, it disconnects my xbox when i turn on this laptop and then after a few minutes once my laptop has connected i am able to get back into xbox live.

        My best suggestion would be to try a different router if at all possible. Searching around on-line shows some other people having a hard time with this model of router and xbox live.
