Built In Wireless explanation.

Hi, I recently went from a wired internet connection, to the 360S's built in wireless connection and I'm not sure how it works.  I was told I didn't need a wireless internet provider.  No wireless provider=no wireless internet, right? So how the heck is the thing even connecting if I don't have a wireless ISP?

The "wireless ISP" is really not a correct phrase... the "wireless" is created by the router itself.   Not your ISP.   Assuming you have a router that has that capability.  Your ISP provider just sends you the signal via the cable (in your case.  In mine, it comes thru the phone line).  Now my mother has cable ISP and her setup is the cable connects to a modem.  The modem is connected to a Linksys (same model as mine).  Her PC is hardwired directly to the router, while her 360 connects to router wirelessly.  You have to go into the router's setup page to create the wireless connection itself.  Then you will have to configure the 360 to connect to that wireless network.
