Windows 7: Xbox 360 Not Connecting + Internet connection going off

Xbox 360 Not Connecting + Internet connection going off

Hi, I have recently Upgrade from Windows Vista Home Premium 32 Bit to Windows 7 Ultimate 32 Bit.

I am now having a problem when i download something the Internet will instantly go off it's not my SP or anything, I have nForce Ethernet controller which i have read up on that it's not working if anyone could offer me a help that would be great. The Error (The Default Gateway is not found"

Now back to topic My pc is connected to my router via Ethernet cable and my Xbox is connected to my PC via Ethernet cable aswell which usually lets me access my PC files and also Xbox live, but now i am unable to connect to my PC and Windows Media Player won't let me add the Extender (Xbox) as it wont connect. One of the errors i was getting was that "Your console didn't obtain an IP address from your DHCP server."

Any Help Would be Appreciated (Sorry about the grammar)

Grammar is fine. Easiest way to resolve not pulling an ip address from DHCP is to set a static ip on the XBOX.
