I have trawled the web high and low for a solution to my problem, but cannot find any.
In my house we have three laptops, one Mac desktop and three xboxs. We live in London and have a good broadband connection with 02. We experienced no problems for the first month but suddenly everything has gone wrong. My laptop and xbox are both brand new, and the only 'old' piece of equipment is the Mac. The internet will work for five minutes, and then drop out, then come back in five minutes. This problem has been experienced since the start of this week. Some days it will be fine, other days it will barely work at all.
All Xbox, when they do connect, work on an open NAT type.
The connection often drops even though it says on the laptop that it is still connected, I will just recieve a 'warning' symbol across the bars symbolising that it isnt working, although still registers its connected. Other times it will completley disconnect from the network.
when I 'diagnose' Windows suggests its a problem with an 'access point', but in my experience the windows diagnosis tool is worth nothing.
Internet will connect and disconnect both on Xbox Live and on the laptops, both with wirless and with ethernet connections every five minutes. Even posting this is a struggle. We are all operating on windows 7 apart from the Mac.
Unplugging the router solves nothing and all virus scans are clear. Does anyone have any suggestions to solve our problem?
