So as requested by the sticky thread..
My xbox 360 (gow3 edition idk if that matters) connects wirless to my router. My router is a Linksys E3000 which connects to an ubee modem (isp is comcast). I am unaware if any other numbers are needed to better verify what router/modem I am using, so if there is more needed info please let me know so I can help you help me.
I have gone through all the steps listed on the /networkhelp troubleshooting page. I have attempted to port forward and as far as I know, I did port forward. I have followed the How To: guide and done everything there and still am having problems. I have tried running an ethernet cord from my router straight into my xbox and still got ntohing. I have tried running the ethernet cable from my modem to my xbox and got nothing. The only thing i might be doing wrong is the static ip for the xbox and making sure that my router is running the same ip for the xbox. I tried to follow a how to guide on creating a static ip that i found on the web. That would be my only point that could be messing with me. If that is not the problem however I am brain dead on what to do next.
Thank you for your time on helping me with my problem.
