xbox slim doesn't do 5ghz wifi - so that's out of the option.
using n speeds on the 2.4ghz seems to cause the same problem.
The best 'solution' I've had is to allow the creation of a 2nd SSID for the 5ghz network, and disable N speeds on the 2.4ghz network.
Whatever the problem is - it's with how the AEBS or 360 communicates N speeds over 2.4ghz.
Here are my settings - this still *****, but at least everything is connected and working. The only port mapping was necessary was for xbox live.

so, I think it's a problem with the xbox and simultaneous dual band routers broadcasting with the same SSID (network name) on both the 2.4ghz and 5ghz channels.
My final solution:
- I bought an xbox dual band wifi adapter (even though my xbox S had built in wifi...).
- Configured the AEBS to broadcast the 5ghz channel with a different name (depicted below).
- Connected the xbox specifically to the 5ghz network only.
Now I get awesome network performance from the 360. It isn't ideal having two ssid's in the house, because you get the question "Which one do I join?" from people, but this will allow me to get streaming HD content (recorded tv, etc) off my media center without the crazy lag.
Network test via media center app on xbox (one small blip - that top line is my network speed now):
