My issue is I have Roadrunner cable connected to a US robotics Broadband router (That doesnt accept the new firmware for reasons unknown to me) and I have my laptop networked to my X-box 360. the issue is, when I am connected to X-box live and the internet on my laptop, after about an hour, I stop recieving signal to my router from my modem. The lights stop blinking on the router for send/receive. I don't know if you guys will have any ideas, but any suggestions will help!

I'd address the "doesn't accept new firmware" issue, since new firmware frequently addresses issues like this.

I have figured out it is the router that stops sending and receiving communication after a given amount of time, and it has nothing to do with the devices that are networked through it. Any suggestions on how to proceed with this issue, it is a US robotics Broadband router that is not accepting new firmware.

I narrowed it down to not the xbox live, but to high p2p traffic. It caused the router to stop sending/recieving. I got a firmware that works, and so far no problems. Thanks mate, cheers.
