I have the Xbox 360 with built in Wi-Fi. When I try to set up Xbox Live all the networks are locked. There is one network that isn't locked but it wont connect. PLEASE HELP!

You need to have a wifi connexion at home that you can connect to. You will need the wep or wpa key ( a protection code for your network) that was programmed in your router so that you can connect to the network. If you do not have a router or a wireless connection at home, you can only connect with a network cable.

I am trying to hook my 360 to the wireless internet in my house using a belkin brand wifi antenna hooked into the usb port on my xbox can you help or is this even possible?

I'm not sure if it will work, but if it will, here's the link to configure up your Xbox for wireless.
The Xbox brand adapter works basically the same, so I don't see why it wouldn't work, unless Microsoft specifically took measures to prevent this. You may also have some security settings on your router that are preventing connection. I personally prefer to connect via Ethernet cable to reduce lag potential, but, to each their own.

Xbox live is not working

How are you connecting Your Xbox console upto your Internet ? if your Connecting Via WiFi, Make sure you have the Xbox compatible WiFi adaptor, if you are connecting Via a Local Area network, Ensure that your Console is hooked up Directly to Your Router, and if your connecting Via a Shared internet connection thru a PC, Ensure it is Hooked up correctly and also that your computer is set up to allow sharing the internet connection, That sometimes makes Xbox live faulty.

Also another problem for IP addresses not working is Due to your Internet service provider, Some broadband companies constantly renew IP addresses changing them every so often which the Xbox doesnt like. I would suggest contacting your Service provider and seeing if they have any Technical Support !

Connect to wireless

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?
