The microsoft wireless adapter on my Xbox360 does not connect to my wireless network

Hi, I have a home network with one computer connected to a Netgear router (WGR614v6) by wire and another computer connected wireless to this router. My son bought an Xbox with the microsoft wireless adapter so he could set up the console in his room but the xbox does not pick up any network at all. When we placed it downstairs and connected it to the netgear router by wire then it establishes connection. In the network setup on the Xbox the option for the wireless connection is grayed out and when we have tried the network adapter to establish connection it says that there is no network available! The light on the microsoft wireless adapter is always red.
Please help!

Try to setup home wireless network to share two home computer

Connect the home wireless network router box to the main PC through an ethernet cable with the PC powered off and the home wireless router powered off, then power on the PC & the router. Vista should locate the new wireless network and follow the windows vista network setup procedures. After the wireless network has been detected you then while the second PC's power is shut off you connect dongle adapter to the PC power on and XP will locate the new adapter. You will probably have to enter your networks pin for the connection.
Get back to me when you complete these steps.
