Problem connecting 2 xbox 360 consoles to the internet at the same time, via a r

Hello,
This is how my connection is...phone line>wall jack>modem>Router
and then from the router it is connected to 2 xbox consoles via ethernet cable
Now this all works fine. BUT ONLY when 1 single xbox console is on. My question is why can I not play maintain a internet connection when I have both xboxs on at the same time connected to the internet. It just drops one xbox's internet connection while the other xbox works fine.
Me and my brother want to play at the same time on-line but we can't because it always drops one of our connections?

  1. Suspect an IP clash -- don't put anything on a fixed IP address.

    Frankly, the Xbox manual ought to cover this as connecting two to a network seems pretty fundamental.
