Default IP Address issue

I have this router running for few days and i love it, before i start enplaning anything i would like to clarify how my network is set up because probably i will be asked before trying to solve my problem.

In my home network i have:

1) One Adsl router
2) Two Buffalo wifi powerlines
3) Two TP-link powerline (not wifi)

I have my main Router TD-W8970 in the first floor connected by ethernet cable from port 1 LAN to buffalo powerline in the second floor and in the third floor i have my second buffalo powerline communication with Buffalo though our home electrical circuits.

Then i have my TD-W8970 ADSl router connected from port 2 LAN to TP-Link powerline and the other TP-link powerline is connected in the guest room (same setup as buffalo powerline)

My issue is simple and it's not related to my network everything works great.... except sometimes the ADSL router won't assign IP address and it shows in my PC "limited connection" with yello exclamation mark in windows 7 signal wifi signal and in my Mac "connection timeout" with an exclamation mark as well. The issue last from about 10 minutes and everything goes normal with out any problems.

From this point i can't access the internet or the router setting page. However even if i am not able to access the internet or the router page from my ADSL router i still can access everything in my network when i am connected to my buffalo powerline....

Though connecting to Buffalo powerline by wifi i access the internet and the my ADSL router settings and as i enter the setting it show that i am connected to the internet...

It really bugs when my ADSL router won't assign IP address and i have to rely in my BUffalo powerline to keep connected.

Note: The issue repeats about everyday for a short time i got it yesterday and today.

Note: My wifi channels are not overlapping i have different channels.

Note: I have my DHCP server enable in the ADSL and disabled in the in all of the powerlines.

One thing i would like to mention is that when devices can't access the internet because of the router simply i connect to my Buffalo powerline then i enter my ADSL IP address once i am in the settings i change the wifi channel to any another channel, then the ADSl starts working. However, i have to repeat the methods each time my ADSL hangs.

Hi Zaid.

This is a wood working forum, not IT forum.

I don't mind if other members disagree with my comments.
