ask your ISP. You need a new IP. Tell them that you get DDosed.

Since the attack is over the open internet and does not involve any part of the Microsoft network, the telephone support agents can't fix this for you. However, a five minute sequential power cycle should result in a new IP address which will disconnect you from the Denial of Service (DoS) attack, and the order and timing of the steps is important to success:

 

0) Run http://www.ipchicken.com in any web browser and record the IP address it found

1) turn off the Xbox and unplug the power supply cord from the back of the Xbox then

2) unplug power from the router (Some folks have a combination modem-router AKA 'gateway' or only use a modem with no router. If either, skip steps 3 & 6).

3) unplug power from the modem.

4) Wait at least 5 minutes then replug the modem/gateway power.

5) Wait 'til the light on the front of the modem/gateway which says BROADBAND, ONLINE, READY, CABLE or DSL is on solid (not flashing), then plug in the router. If you have a gateway instead of a modem and router or a modem with no router, then when that light says it's ready, skip to step 7.

6) Wait until the WiFi light on the router is on; you may not use WiFi, but it's still a good indicator your router is finished booting up.

7) Plug in and turn on the Xbox.

8) In any web browser, go back to http://www.ipchicken.com and compare the external IP address to what you had before.

 

If that did not change, then ask your ISP how you can change it to avoid the DoS attack.

What leads you to believe you are a victim of a DDoS attack?

Simply having your connection remain latent or erratic does not equate to the same situation.

You can change the 'MAC Address Clone' on your router's WAN interface to obtain a different DHCP address from your provider.
