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:

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:
909336 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/909336/ ) Your Xbox 360 console receives a weak wireless signal
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.
You will either need a Wireless Adapter or an Ethernet Cable. Either way a router is also needed.
With the adapter you just need to go to network settings and it should connect.
With the ethernet cable you need to take a few more steps and it will connect.
You need to sign up through your xbox or by calling 1-800-4-My-Xbox. You need your xbox to be connected to the internet either by plugging in the network jack in the back of the console, or buying a wireless network adapter and hooking it up to your local wireless network.
if you plug the computer into the usb port a box will come up and you register it as for the adapter get the one for the xbox plug it in and go to the dashboard then console setting then xbox live connection then test connection and if it doesnt work try the linksys one or the wired one.
Basically i know its a rip off but if u wanna use wireless with the xbox 360 u need to buy the official xbox 360 wireless router which is about £60.There is another way if u dont use wireless u can connect the xbox 360 to a router or the phone line then go to your windows firewall and set it up manually.Hope this can help you .Joe stevenson
It only works with the microsoft adapter nothing else. You'll have to buy the Xbox 360 Wireless Network Adapter from microsoft and it cost around $100 bucks. It suxks that microsoft charge for this thing, it should come free with the machine
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?
