I have an issue with my new router. My Xbox 360 will no connect to the router after it has been power cycled. The first time I setup the connection my 360 works perfectly for about ~30 mins, and then it will disconnect from the router. When power cycled the Xbox 360's MAC address will show up for 2 seconds in the WIreless Nodes section of the router's menu (Status -> Wireless -> Wireless Nodes) and then disappear, showing up again after about 30 seconds. If I forget the wireless network and set it again, everything works perfectly again, until it gets disconnected after the 30 mins or so. This is the only device I'm having issues with.
The router is using the DD-WRT firmware. The SSID is not being broadcast, the network type is mixed g/n, and the security type is WPA2 Personal AES/TKIP. The wireless router is ~20 feet away fwith no walls or other obstuctions in the way from the Xbox 360. And again, this is the only device I'm having issues with.
Any idea what might be wrong? What do I need to do to get this fixed?

Anyone??? Still don't know why my Xbox 360 won't remember the connection I setup beyond the first power cycle.
edit: It won't connect at all now, even after removing and adding the network again. Just shows up for a few seconds in the wireless nodes and then goes away, over and over again.

What wireless mode and channel have you set? Is the problem soley with the xbox or are other devices having the same issue?

Only a problem with the XBOX. All my other devices connect just fine.
I've tried Mixed, Mixed B/G, Mixed N/G, auto channel, channels 1/9/11, wpa 2, wpa, wep, and no security. All in combination with each other. Still was not connecting to the router.
Switching to the "User Friendly" Buffalo firmware allowed the Xbox to connect right away so I'm guessing there is some setting that I'm missing in the dd-wrt firmware that is preventing it from connecting. Unfortantly I can't stay on the buffalo firmware because it is causing issues with my other networked devices.
edit: And this was using the latest firmware posted on the support site (v24sp2-18795)
