    Hey all, first time poster here.

    Pretty much I first noticed this problem when I would connect to Xbox Live via wireless and it would work fine, but as soon as I start searching for players in say Halo Reach it would disconnect everything on the network. This included computers and phones that are connected either via Ethernet cords or wirelessly.

    It is my router disconnecting and not my modem though as I have two separate devices. In order for me to restore connection I have to manually restart the router as I can't access it through the usual method.

    Giving up I decided to play some MW3 on PC but as soon as I started to connect to other clients my whole internet would disconnect. Again this is just the router doing it. I've portforwarded everything as required however it is still giving me this issue.

    So what I know for sure is that as soon as my router tries to connect to other clients rather than a server such as websites,xbox live etc it would disconnect.

    What would be causing this????

    The router is a Dlink DIR-300
