This happened to me on a wireless connection a few days ago. I just switched to a wired connection for a few days and when I went back no disconnecting. :-)

I think it would most likely be down to a wireless connection. It depends how good the signal is around your network, and when you're hooked up wirelessly it tends to sway a little bit. I remember it used to do it on my PS3, but as soon as I connected via Ethernet it was fine.

that kept happening to me, but then i realized it was because my sister plays wow, and since we shared the same wireless, she kept reseting it when it was going slow

I guess you have several computers on 1 network right? I could be that one of the computers is pushing your xbox and/or laptop of off the network. Your network gets too crowded and cuts of one of the connections, in this case the xbox 360 because of the constant use of the bandwidth. That's a problem I'm constantly having, still haven't found a solution for it.

Edit: the only solution is an internet chord instead of a wireless adapter.

IP Address Conflict is where more than one device is attempting to use the same IP at the same time. Thus, you have connection issues. To fix this, reserve the ip addresses of the devices so that they get the same ip from the DHCP server.

I had a few devices connected at the same time. What I did was reserved the PC & 360 IP addresses, and had a wireless laptop that didn't have its ip reserved by the DHCP server.

How do you reserve the IP addresses? I have my xbox hooked up to the router with an ethernet cable and sometimes its fine, but other times I get randomly disconnected. Its not the connection because the laptop is still connected online when I get disconnected from Live. Its a Linksys Wireless G if that helps.
