Wireless Problems - Bridge Interference?

I'm at a loss here... wireless not working but I get connection fine on the Computer connected via Ethernet to the modem/router (in one device)

-Switched internet providers a few days ago
-Everything working fine
-Tried to log on xbox live with new connection. This is where problems started. I had my laptop running on wireless, then connected to xbox via ethernet cord and made a bride on my laptop.
-Couldn't connect to xbox live, deleted original bridge, still no xbox.

-Unplug router... and there goes wi-fi

-Router now works for ~ 1 minutes after every time I reset it, then it somehow picks up a connection from my old internet provider, over-riding the new connection.

-Running ipconfig/all shows that upon resetting the router everything is okay. About a minute letter, the DNS server somehow changes (I think to my previous providers server?)

-The wireless was fine until I started messing with xbox bridge

- I have powered down my laptop, still have interference.

Wut do?

couple questions...

Are you in a dorm / apartment complex? or a more open area?

what is your local IP set to? the default on most is something like 192.168.1.1. I've had a similar issue and changing my IP to something other than the default can help.

How many walls/distance does the xbox to the router have to travel?

do you have any wireless phones? they could be running in the same frequency range as your wifi.

how old is your router? who makes it?

I'm guessing I found your problem here though sadly I don't have a way to fix it. If your modem is still setup off your old ISP then I don't see it working for the new one. Good luck.

Does this still happen if you're plugged directly into the router? How about plugging directly into the modem?

You might also try a factory reset on the router, there's a chance you had to set up some ISP-specific info at one point that's causing it to use a particular DNS.
