strangely enough the XBox just lost its 10.x.x.x ip address and now it says 192.168.106.136. I have no idea how it would be getting this IP Address. It's connected via ethernet to an XFi pod and my Router is setup to serve DHCP addresses in the range 10.0.0.2 - 10.0.0.253. how could it possibly be getting this 192.x.x.x ip address?

I have 3 XFi pods connected to my Router and things seem to be fine. Wifi coverage and speed are great throughout the house. My kids have an XBox in the basement and complain that when connected via Wifi it "lags" from time to time. To combat that they have been connecting via ethernet cable directly to the XFi pod in the basement. Having a wired connection on the XBox seems to keep them happy. I have setup Port Forwarding to that IP Address and NAT Type is Open and everyone is happy...for a day.
They use it fine, go to bed, and when they come back the next day, the XBox seems to be disconnected even though it's still plugged into the XFi pod. I check the Network Advanced Settings and it seems like it lost it's 10.x.x.x IP Address in favor of some other address. i disconnect the cable from the pod and reconnect and sometimes that works, other times i need to hard reset the XBox to get it to show up again with 10.x.x.x IP address.
I'm not sure if this is an XBox issue or an XFi issue, but i have seen other threads on here complaining about the wired connections on the pods so just assuming. Has anyone else experienced this or know of something I can do to force the Xbox to remain connected to the XFi pod?
