    I found this blog post via Google search. Been trying to discover why my 360 suddenly no longer connected to my WRT54G after switching the firmware back to DD-WRT from Tomato.

    I thought for sure the new title update had something to do with my Xbox no longer accepting an automatic IP address. So I troubleshooted one last time, found our post and yep… switching the client lease time from 0 to 5 worked for me as well. So thank youvery much for writing about your struggle getting your 360 to connect properly!

    Thank you muchly for posting this. It has been a while since my XBox has been on and I was at a loss why it couldn’t connect anymore. I could see the MAC address in my router status page with an IP but the XBox insisted it didn’t have one. Changed the lease time and voila, there it went with my long overdue updates.

    Same as others have mentioned above. I’ve been wondering for a long time why my xboxes wouldn’t take a DHCP assignment from the router. Thanks for the insight.

    You’re the man! You saved me from flashing the original firmware back on there. Who would have thought that option would have done it!?! Can’t believe I’ve been using the “test network connection” trick for the last couple of months.

    Another weird E3000 config (DD-WRT v24-sp2 (04/13/11) std-usb-nas) I found was the IP Filter settings (Administration -> Management / IP Filter Settings). It had weird values that caused some of my persistent connections (IMAP server) to stop working. E.g., TCP timeout had “300 600” instead of the default “600”. I *thought* I had reset to defaults when I first brought up DD-WRT, but maybe I missed that.
