I have been reading many issues about wireless not working. Please try it with the ethernet, you should buy a new adapter. Sometimes the internal memory get's lost and the drivers mess up.

Hey NMK, sorry to hear about the adapter issue! To be sure, are you using the original white adapter with the single antenna? I see from your post that the adapter doesn't work, and that if it's plugged into ANY port on the console, the console will not turn on, correct? Have you had a chance to try the adapter on a friend's console, to see if the same thing happens there?
