I've been having some frustrating issues with connecting to Xbox Live. Here are the steps that create the problem.
1. Login to Xbox Live
2. Load game (any game; be it Halo, Call of Duty, Battlefield...even the Homefront multiplayer demo)
3. Search for online match
4. Disconnected from Xbox Live
5. Re-login to Xbox Live
6. Search for online match, play, stay connected until I turn the Xbox off.
However, this is not always how it happens. Sometimes I will be disconnected before I search for a game or during a game. I can tell it's happening because my screen will usually freeze during the game or in the game menus (which is odd, because why would an internet connecting be associated with the graphics?). Other times I will be disconnected several times throughout a gaming session, and I can instantly reconnect.
I don't know if it is an Xbox Live issue or an ISP issue. My ISP was contacted and they say they don't "see" any problems. I've played with this console at other locations, and have not had this problem.
