      Connection Dropping While On Xbox Live

      Hello people. I have had little to no problems with Sky broadband until recently. I kept having sudden disconnection (internet light going off then amber then green) I rang sky and they sent me out a replacement D-Link router to solve the problem. After swapping out the old with the new I tried again. Connection would be stable until my Xbox gets turned on. After 10-15 minutes it does the whole (internet light going off then amber then green) again and boots me off live. This only happens when my Xbox is turned on. It is connected to my router via ethernet so it's not a wireless issue. Also for some reason for the last 2 weeks or so my speed has been dropped from 3.2mb to about 1.8mb. Anybody have any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

      What sky Internet service are you on? Also could your internet stats from your router so we can see what your connection
      Is like?

      Lol iwnte should have noticed that, to OP I had exact problem with Xbox live on connect I would get on Xbox live ok and start a match of world at war zombies with my friend then I'd lose connection to the game and as that happened the Internet light had gone Amber on router.

      Personally I think you might have just been 'lucky' in regards to your sky connect being ok so far until now, try and find out if sky's main broadband services Have maybe become available to you and get on that, you will never encounter current problems you are having.

      If you search on these forums you will see how awful connect is and as you can see by name I have the scars from my own horror story with connect
