    Every time my girlfriend's brother plugs his xbox into their router to run xbox live, he destroys the internet connection for the other computers in the house.

    He's a fairy worthless, self absorbed 17 year old who won't help anyone in the house fix it. I'm in Texas, she's in Ca, so I can't go over and work on it myself.

    Modem/Wireless Router is a 2 wire from Time Warner (which so far I've found to be a piece of crap).

    Her computer won't connect wirelessly after he does xbox live, and the one computer that is wired is extremely slow.

    Any ideas?

    No idea what that means, purchasing something is not the solution.

    How about blocking xbox from the router forever?

    How about if she tells her brother to fuck off with his Xbox?

    isn't it great when people look for technical solutions to problems that could be solved with a pair of wire cutters or a swift kick in the ass? :)

    I've been proposing that solution for months.

    should have her ruin the cable in such a way that it isn't immediately obvious. keep tugging and stretching it in hopes of breaking a wire inside or something annoying like that. :)
