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.

This mainly depends on your internet modem, I use linksys when I play xbox live. Also I use wireless adapter, sometimes an ethernet cable as well to plug straight from my xbox to my modem. Make sure your modem is connected to the internet, and that if your xbox has a signal, or properly connected to it.
Hope this helps a little. Good Luck!
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.
In theory you should be able to "share" your internet connection. I use a Linksys WRT54GS wireless router and I have a Linksys Game adapter on my son's 360. He has not complained about lag or slow server times unless other intensive bandwidth is being used.
make sure that internet connection working fine first..if it is connect you xbox via wired or wireless(if wireless, make sure that you connect to your own wireless network and enter the wireless security if there is)...check if you can get an ip address, better set to obtain the ip address and dns of your xbox, if all set and still unable to access internet, access the linksys router setup page by typing 192.168.1.1 on the address bar of your internet explorer, when pop-up for username and password type admin under password, leave it empty for the username. Click administration tab and disabled UPnP. Check if your X-BOX working fine. Hope this help you.
Ok, all you have to do when it comes to buying a wireless reciever is to buy the microsoft brand one made for xbox live. (100 dollars) Once you have this;
1. turn of the xbox 360 and plug in the adapter.
2.turn on the 360 and go to the network settings option
3. this should bring up a page offering a view of you ip address and ect., go to the bottom link (3rd), and select it.
4. this should give you the option to select your wireless network, then connect to it and test the xbox live connection.
5. Once you pass the test, continue to hit "b" until you are back at the very main menu and begin playing!
If you're looking for an option to connect the XBOX consoles to your wireless G network you'll need to purchage a wireless game adapter (simular to a wireless bridge) like this one for linksys http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16873999102 for each console you wish to connect. You will have to connect the game adapter to your pc first to configure it on the network and then connect it to the XBOX. Xbox should detect the wireless adapter and you should be ready to go.
Try resetting your router and reconfiguring. Secondly try using a different wireless security mode that the 360 adapter supports. If the router is a linksys, that could be the problem. Linksys has a very common drop problem. I have found that D-Link has better integrity for wireless devices. Also try putting another device on the network via Wireless, if the same result, replace the router. Also, you can do a search on google for wireless router tweaks, to optimize the router for and xbox wireless connection. One more thing. be sure you force an ip address for the adapter in the settings area on the 360. That promises the same IP everytime it connects. Then go into your router configuration and forward the ports for xbox live, the wireless connection may not even be dropping, but a port problem with live while trying to authenticate your game system
The following ports must be available for Xbox Live to operate correctly: • UDP 88 • UDP 3074 • TCP 3074
