Question about Microsoft Wireless Network Adapter Xbox 360 (SKWIFIX360)
When I plug in the adapter to the x box, the network adapter in when I test the live connection it reads "Disconnected."
Just unplug the Xbox, The xbox is a computer like yours. Soometimes with poweroutages, or ****.. The USB ports can get messed up. Or you onboard lan get get messed up. Uplug the Xbox power supply, and unhook the USB Net Adapter.
Wait a min or so. Plug back in.. Turn on, plug the USB net adapter back in wolaa.
The USB adapters are very simple really... Very hard to blow them up... no moving parts.

I had the same problem and it's happened on numerous occasions before. Previously, i was fortunate, the ol' unplug, wait 15 secs, replug and voila! But just this minute it refused to work whatever i tried. So i unplugged the power source, waited and it worked. Trial and error my friends, either that or blow up Bill Gates.

I Have Similliar setup. We are Running LINKSYS WRTG wireless G router with 2 wireless laptops 2 wired PC's and 2 Xbox360's. When I first spent 100.00 on the thing and it dint work I decided to RESET My router.
Make sure to RE-CREATE a W.E.P Key or anyother security key on the router. Also make sure you have enought IP address's being assigned (default should be 25 or more) on the router.
REBOOT ALL DEVICES this Includes The MODEM, ROUTER and the Xbox.
ReRun the XBOX NETWORK TEST. I peridiocally have to reset the MODEM and Router for it to Reconnect to it.
P.S. I have just noticed on the LinkSys router If I SET the NAME other than default it doesnt connect to it it sees it but wont connect.

It has to be the adapter when i plug in my friends working one it works just fine... i have now gone thru two of them and both of them show a steady red light and my xbox 360 says there is no wireless mode.... when pluging them in to my laptop it says they their info and everything so there shouldn't be anything wrong with them

Well we had our xbox hooked up fine with a wireless adapter that was not the microsoft one and when we put the microsoft obne in it didnt work so we tried to get a new one and we got the same problem. my solution is to take it back and get a new adapter for a little bit cheaper. the only problem is that it works 75% of the time. i have an elite and its adapter from microsoft worked fine... im not sure overall

You are unfortunly not the only one that have exact the same problem. But as far as I see, nobody have got a solution for it.
It seem`s anyway that it is the machine itself that is the problem, and not the adapter itself. Some people included myself have change to a new adapter, but with same problem.
As far as I thinking, it seems that 360 have a high production wrong in this chase, similar as the ring of death. So that you change your machine to a new, may not help either. I did that, but with the same problem. Microsoft have no solution for it either. So pretty hopeless, and its pretty hopless to change machine all the way to one that is good too. But, maybe that is the best soluton afterall, but be sure that it accept the adapter before you walking out the store with a new machine. Remember, this should be on the guarantee, so you can send it in to Microsoft service as well.
