You might have the wrong RAM in there. I see you are running 12gb at 533MHz. To run 12gb, I think you need 1066MHz. Have you tried putting the stock RAM back in there and seeing if it works?

Try adding a PCI LAN card to your PC. Hook your xbox up to that and share your internet through your PC. Very cheap, very easy. You can probably find a PCI LAN card on ebay for $10 or less.
