Can't hold connection half the time

Ok, before we begin, just let me say that I am an avid Xbox fan that loves the system and everything with it/ I've had the system for a few years now, for over a year with my system being in the same location it sits at right now as we speak. However, as of late it has randomly decided to not host a connection for me at random times, sometimes for hours on end.

 

What Country/State/Province do you live in? Pennsylvania, United States
Modem brand & model number: I think it would be as a ****
TM602G
Router brand & model number: Linksys WRT160N V3
Network Connection Type: Wireless
If Wireless, what type of encryption are you using? WPA 2
If Wireless, are you using a white or black external adapter, or an internal (Xbox 360S) adapter? Black external
Things you have tried: Different forms of port forwarding, Unplugging router and modem and replugging them, moved my wireless mode to a BG mix to remove the N interference, you name it I most likely tried it.
Is UPnP Enabled? According to my router, yes
Is NAT Type Open? Half the time a report comes back saying it is moderate
Any Error Codes you encounter: None
What type of internet do you have? I think Cable, might be broadband, not really sure
Who is your ISP(Internet Service Provider)? RCN
After you run "Test Xbox LIVE connection" and click on "More info", what is the exact message shown on screen? I get basically every message that you can get. Sometimes connection goes further, sometimes not as far, varies really.

Anything you might be able to give me, I would be willing to most likely try as I am running out of ideas with being unable to find anywhere else possible to move my system due to the computer room being unable to hold the system and hard wire it. As I said, I used to have no issues really outside of knowing my NAT wasn't fully open, but it has gradually gotten worse over time.

The problem to this is my system is too far to connect via ethernet cable without risk of being tripped over or possibly ripped out, plus don't know how would get cable across the distance in the house sadly.

Hi, if your running the latest firmware and port forwarding or UPnP doesn't get your NAT open then set your router like this:- www.unofficialguidetolive.co.uk/.../62-my-nat-is-strict-or-moderate

 

If you still have issues after that it will be your wireless so experiment with different wireless channels www.unofficialguidetolive.co.uk/.../114-troubleshooting-and-improving-wireless
