duplicate networks and will not connect to router

this has been going on for a while now and i have been able to get around this issue but now i cant connect to my router at all. i use a wireless adapter and the issue with duplicate networks came up when my dad got a new router but kept the same name as the old wifi network but changed the password and so wheni would try to connect to my router it would always fail and since then we have gotten another new router and the name is similar but not the same as the old network name and the problem with duplicate networks would still come up. i was able to fix the issue by going to specify unlisted network and typeing in the old network name and reseting factory defaults but duplicate networks still comes up when trying to connect to my new router and now i cant connect at all and nothing i try that used to work will help.

I suggest that you set-up a static IP for your Xbox 360 Console.

You can do this the following way,

On your computer:

  1. Go to Start and type in CMD and press ENTER.
  2. In the CMD type ipconfig
  3. A whole bunch of numbers and things should come up, scroll up until you see the following values:
IPv4 Address: <Your IPv4 Address>
Subnet Mask:
Default Gateway: <Your Default Gateway>
Important: Note down these values.
On your Xbox 360:
  1. From the Dashboard, select Settings, and then select System.
  2. Select Network Settings.
  3. If prompted, select your Network Type (Wireless or Wired).
  4. Select Configure Network.
  5. Select IP Settings.
  6. Select Manual.
  7. Select IP Address and enter the IPv4 Address you wrote down.
  8. Select Subnet Mask and enter
  9. Select Gateway and enter the Default Gateway you wrote down.
  10. Select Done.
Let us know if doing this fixed the issue =)
