Turn on the console and navigate to the wireless settings screen. On
the Xbox, the menu path is "Settings -> Network Settings ->
Advanced -> Wireless -> Settings" On the Xbox 360, the menu path
is "System -> Network Settings -> Edit Settings."
Set the SSID (network name) on the Xbox to match that of the
wireless router. If your wireless router has enabled SSID broadcast, the
SSID name should appear pre-selected on the Xbox display. Otherwise,
select the "Specify Unlisted Network" option and enter the SSID there.
Specify "Infrastructure" as the Network Mode. (Infrastructure is the
mode used by wireless routers.)
Set the Security Type to match that of the wireless router. If your
router uses WPA encryption and the type of adapter connected to the Xbox
does not support WPA, you will need to change your router settings to
use WEP encryption instead.
Note that the standard Microsoft Xbox 360 Wireless Network Adapter
supports WPA while the standard Microsoft Xbox Wireless Adapter (MN-740)
only supports WEP.
Save your settings and verify the network is functional.
On the Xbox, the Wireless Status screen displays whether a
connection has successfully been made with the wireless router, and the
Connect Status screen displays whether a connection has successfully
been made through the Internet to Xbox Live.
On the Xbox 360, use the "Test Xbox Live Connection" option instead.

XBOX 360 is alredy wifi enabled you dont have to plug a thing in to it, if you want to configure wireless
All you got to do is turn on your wireless router/access point and try to search for available network in Xbox 360 and upon selectin the network it would ask for wireless key (WEP key cab found on the back or bottom of router) punch in the key and bingo...its done
Your box is ready to be wirelessly connected to internet and play online
alternatively if you dont ahve a wirelss router or you are facing difficulty is seraching wireless router or finding the security key
Connect the router to modem > then connect the router and XBOX with an ethernet cable
It will work
Else you can also try connecting the modem and XBOX with an ethernet or USB cable
(However in all the aboove scenario, please ensure the modem is getting the internet link through the normal RJ11 or phone cable, please dont unplug that else though your XBOX would be connected to Modem or router but it wont get internet connection)
I think you meant WEP key. this is a wireless encryption security key. and it is normally required when you try to connect to a secured network. Your administrator should be able to provide you with this. because it varies. i.e you can set it to whatever you want if you have access to the wireless router. in your case Belkin 54g Wireless DSL/Cable Router so please if you have access to it, log in to the router and check from wireless security settings.
connect your router to computer with ethernet cable. Then you can access it with following link. for belkin routers http://192.168.15.1 for other routers http://192.168.1.1 or http://192.168.0.1
type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or blank or "password" Then
you can see configuration page of router.Click on wireless and If you
want secure router then enable WEP security then add new code it is
your password key for connect wi fi. Let me know if you need further assistance.
When you get in the interface to configure WEP, set a pass phrase. Write down the 3 numeric keys it generates. Then connect to the wireless using your laptop, etc. When it asks for your passkey, do not enter the pass-phrase; enter one of the three keys that were generated by the router. That's the biggest mistake people make when trying to get wireless to work.
I believe you are referring to the network key set on the Belkinrouter. Since you do not have the code, you will have to access yourrouter's web interface. Let's begin with your router:
Using your working laptop, open Internet Explorer type 192.168.2.1 (default IP address of Belkin routers) press Enter. It will ask for a username and password - by default it'sadmin for both. If it does not accept admin, type in the username andpassword you set to your router when you installed it for the firsttime.
Once you open the setup page of the router, go to the Wireless tab ofthe router (located on the left side of the web interface. Look forSSID and WEP key or Network key (SSID is the name of your wireless network). Take note of the SSID and WEP keybecause you will need to set this on the XBOX console.
On the XBOX:
Open the dashboard settings - select Network Settings. Configure your XBOX to connect to your wireless network. When it ask for the network key - type in the code that you will see on the router's web interface.
Try the steps I mentioned, give us an update and I'll reply ASAP if you need further assistance.
I suggest setting this up with a WPA encryption rather than WEP encryption. This should get ya setup without a problem. Also, I've noticed live to be a bit buggy since Christmas. If you continue to have troubles after trying this call 800-4my-xbox. The recording will tell you if they are having network issues.
