I haven't tried this yet and probably won't be able to until later this evening... but in hopes that it works, I figured I'd go ahead and post it for others to try. Below is an exact copy/paste of the "solution" from an EA rep... "power recycle" and all, haha.
Lisa: "You just have to power recycle your modem once and the issue should resolve as this has worked for many players.
Please do powercycle your modem. This is done by unplugging your modem from the power supply and letting it rest for about 10 to 15 minutes and then plugging it back in. During this time, you can reset your Xbox 360's time and date setting to the 11/15/2005 by following the below given steps.
• Press the Xbox Guide button on the controller to enter the Dashboard.
• Sign out of Xbox Live by pressing the X button.
• Select the System blade.
• Select Console Settings and press the A button.
• Select Clock and press the A button.
• Change the date to 11/15/2005 and press the A button to accept.
Combined, these steps may be able to refresh your console's connection to Xbox Live and resolve most, if not all of your connectivity issues.
Lisa: Please follow them step by step and the issue should resolve.
