I Have to Reconnect to my Network Every Time I Turn on my Xbox

Every time I turn on my Xbox it shows that I am connected to my home network but I have zero bars of connection. I have to disconnect from the network and search for wireless networks several times before it will find the right one again. Then I can select it and put in the password and it will connect fine. After I am connected I have extremely good connection and I'm almost always host if I play games online.

This is on the new Xbox 360 slim version that I just got recently. When I had my old Xbox 360 with a wireless adapter I had no connection problems at all whatsoever. The difference is that with my old Xbox I had created a static IP and forwarded all of the necessary ports in order to open my NAT. With my new xbox I tried to set up the static IP and port forwarding but I couldn't get it to work. So I set it back to dynamic and my deleted the port forwarding options. After that I still had an open NAT but I started to experience the connection problems that I mentioned earlier.

I don't necessarily need to set up the static IP again (although it would be nice) but instead I just simply want to not have to reconnect to my network every time I turn on my Xbox.

I am using a Linksys E3000 adapter and Comcast is my ISP. 

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Hey Tacteo, Reset the router to factory/default settings. Make sure you have the latest firmware. Visit the manufactures website and download it from there. Check the wireless security type. It is recommended that you use WPA/WPA2 or WPA2 Personal.
