Check the status light on your adapter
The state of the adapter's status light indicator can tell you the
status of the Xbox 360 Wireless G Networking Adapter. Here's what the
different lights mean:
Steady green light: The adapter is connected to a wireless router, gateway, or access point. The adapter is ready to use.

HI you did not mention is you are able to use the unit even tho the led turns red. If not then the unit is drawing to much current and the power supply is shutting down. Or the power supply is faulty, If you can and know someone with a 360 system try to borrow theirs and see which part of the system is faulty if you know his is good and the same thing happens, or take yours to his house and try, but if same results then the 360 is at fault.
this happens to me with my adapter but I happen to get it to work by leaving it plugged in and leaving the xbox on.or i restart the xbox over and over. Mine seemes to have like a charge time so keep restarting and plugging the adapter in other ports.. It should after a while turn on. if not try another adapter because it may not be the adapter that's causing the problem. Your console may have bad ports.
My adapter light is a solid red. When I plug in an ethernet cord, that'll connect.. but when I take the ethernet cable out, the 360 always reports Disconnected under Network Adapter even though the wireless adapter is plugged in.
You may need to foward ports and allow the router to talk to your xbox 360. I do not know the ports of the top of my head but when u get the error from your xbox 360 that it cant connect look into where it says ways to solve the problem. It should tell you the ports. Personaly I am wired and its way better. No lag and no problems.
