Router Resets when turning on other computer

  1. I won a Zyxel Prestige router - which is fine...it does the job.

    There are 3 things connecting to the router wirelessly - 2 computers and the Xbox console.

    When the other computer is turned on it causes the router to reset...this happens everytime....but it doesn't do it with mine or the xbox.

    Is there a setting that may be causing this?

    The first thing that I would recommend is to see if the router manufacturer has an update to the firmware that runs the device. I would apply all updates and see if that solves the problem.

    sounds like there's duplicate IP addresses on the net. This should only occur *IF*
    you set the addresses manually.
    Revert all systems to using DHCP and I second the recommendation for firmware updates.
