Gentlemen. I present to you today a baffling conundrum which has been vexing me for months. around Christmas my sister got a huge raise and bonus, which resulted in a flurry of new technology rushing into the household. all at the same time we set up a new wireless router, (for our wireless modem) an Xbox 360 and SnowLeopard for my MacBook Pro. This is where things get strange. I noticed that late at night, after the Xbox had been turned off, my internet connection started getting strange. without the system acknowledging anything had happened (all 5 bars in the airport symbol, my AIM client still claimed i was connected) i would suddenly be unable to load anything (in any browser) or send or receive any IMs. I would turn my airport off and immediately on again, then the problem would be solved. then, exactly five minutes later, it would happen again. I've been able to connect this "funky-internet phenomenon" as i like to call it, to the Xbox being OFF. I am a walking detector for when the machine gets powered down. this ONLY HAPPENS WHEN THE XBOX IS OFF, and the second it is turned back on, my internet stops doing this. and here's the kicker.... my computer is the only one this happens to. my solution has been to keep the Xbox on 24-7, but this is not a good long-term solution. any ideas? this seems impossible.
