I have just bought a wireless adapter for an XBOX 360 and it will not connect to the WIFI signal in the house (Netgear wgr614 router). The problem is exacerbated by the fact that the XBOX wireless settings are 'greyed out' on the screen and the device won't even let me change them to add things like SSID's and stuff. The red light comes on the adapter when it is plugged in, so it is getting power to it. The XBOX live link worked fine when it was using ethernet cable. I have unplugged the ethernet cable. Please help - this is infuriating.

I believe this website can answer your problem.
Note: You need either an "Xbox 360 S" console with built-in WiFi or an "Xbox 360 Wireless Networking Adapter" to have a WiFi internet connection. If you can use a wired internet connection, you should use it because a wired internet connection connects faster than a wireless internet connection.
not really, as it can't share that signal with your xbox. It can only join their network. If you had a router, and you set it up to "extend" their network, then you could have your xbox connect to the router which would be on their network.
Of course this is illegal and I advise you don't do it.
Note If you do not see the name of your wireless network, select Advanced Options. Then select Specify Unlisted Network and enter your wireless network name. Select your wireless security type (WEP, WPA, WPA, or No Security). This security type needs to match the security of your wireless network.
Select Configure Network.
On the Basic Settings tab, select Wireless Mode.
Note If wireless mode is not available and you are using the black Wireless N Networking Adapter, try using the software installation disc included with the adapter. For more information about how to do this, please see the following article:
977641 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/977641/ ) How to set up the Xbox 360 Wireless N Networking Adapter
Select Scan for Networks.
Select your wireless network name.
If your network is not listed, try the following:
Select Specify Unlisted Network, and enter your wireless network name (also referred to as your Service Set Identifier [SSID]).
Select your wireless security: WEP, WPA, WPA2, or No Security (if your network doesn't have a password).
If you can't connect to your wireless network, try improving your wireless signal using the tips in the following article:

Enter your wireless network password, and then select Done.
Note Make sure that you have entered the correct password. An incorrect password might allow your console to connect to your wireless network, but you might receive an IP address error when you test your Xbox LIVE connection.
Press B on your controller, and then select Test Xbox LIVE Connection.
your router may have incorect connection settings. what i mean is that your router may have security on that rejects connecting to adapter. check if the xbox can connect to the internet via ethernet cable. this will tell for sure if the 1 the adapter cannot read the signal or 2 the adapter is not able read any signals. to test if its the adapter, try searching for other signals.if you find any other signal it means your router. is rejecting to send the signal to the xbox.
the only thing you need for connecting 360 to wireless is an Internet connection, an 802.11G wireless router, and a wifi adapter that connects to your 360. They have these at walmart or any gaming store. I suggest giving your 2-Wire back to ATT! NOT QUALITY. Especially for gaming. I myself prefer my box to be hard wired as lag is far less. BUT..for wifi Get a Linksys Router and XBox brand wifi adapter for 360. Also google xbox connect. Instead of paying for LIVE
I believe the X-Box does NOT have Wifi built in?
(sic)Surprisingly, the Xbox 360 doesn't have wireless networking built in. If you don?t fancy using the wired Ethernet method, you can invest in a wireless networking adapter. Microsoft has its own adapter specifically designed for the Xbox 360, but third-party Wifi-certified devices will work just as well.(sic) From the below site.
So that may be ya problem?
