Default 360 Elite help!!!! Networking issues

Okay so when I first got my Elite I set it up and plugged it in directly to my modem/router combo and it worked flawlessly and I was online for over a month.

Now I unplugged the ethernet cable so I could update my A-20 and when I plugged it back into the Xbox it says that there's no network detected and it can't sign me in. I reset the xbox networking to factory defaults and reset my router and I've still got nothing. When I plug the same cable into my laptop and my PS3 it works fine.

Anyone have any ideas? (this is the exact reason I returned my first elite)

Plug it back into the router, plug it into the 360, unplug both, wait 20 seconds, then plug both back in and run the test on the 360.

You didnt say if you were using cable which it sounds like you are. Ice2Dragon has the correct answer. If plugging directly into the modem, you must recycle the modem when changing out devices in order for the cable companys network to reprovision your connection. Permanent solution is to go buy you a router/switch combo and you dont have to do this sort of crap.

I second that. Modems don't like it when you switch what they're connected to. I think it has to do with the MAC address, and the fact that the modem can usually only deal with one at a time, and has to be reset (or power cycled) if you want to connect it to something else.

I'm at work so I can't try it until tonight, but the modem is a modem/wireless router combo. I tried it with my Linksys router as well and it didn't work and I also reset the router and nothing.

Hopefully unplugging both and letting it sit for a minute will do the trick. Thanks guys.
