Last night i fitted a new TPlink adsl modem/router TP-LINK TD-W8968 to replace the very basic one provided by the isp which is a huwaie clone.
The reason i was asked to do this is because their xbox wouldn't connect correctly to xbox live even though internet was fine.
he also has 2 tp link extenders dotted around the house and all internet worked fine on those too
fitted new modem,.set up PPOE/llc username/pword VCI 33 VPI 0 AS ADVISED BY isp over the phone and succeeded to connect to net. tested xbox and vconnected to xbox live...all good.
set up the 2 extenders....all good............internet everywhere and confirmed with client as working.
two hours later no net anywhere and an ip conflict on a pc
i don't have any experience with xbox which i don't think is the issue but i have configured adsl albeit here using the quick setup with success
i really don't know why it should drop off
excuse writing badly, i've broken my right hand

Marc, did you assign an IP address for the Xbox which is outside the router's DHCP range?

Have a read here:
