in this case you need to do a port forwarding,which is something like opening the specific ports on router so that xbox will communicate with internet
for that we need to know the ip address of xbox and port numbers for xbox.contact microsoft for knowing the port numbers and their range,so we can do a port forwarding on your router
You need to reconfigure the wireless settings of your xbox. First, verify if you xbox can connect online by using ethernet cable. If it works that way, the only thing that you need to reconfigure is the wireless settings of the xbox. Make sure you have the same SSID and encryption key with the new router.
