Unable to connect to internet through wireless adaptor on xbox 360


Im having a bit of trouble connecting to the internet through my xbox 360's wireless adaptor. im able to connect through wireless on my laptop, which i am on right now. i dont know much about internet connections, but every test i run to connect to xbox live fails, and a message comes up stating.

"can't obtain an ip address from your router or modem

your router or modem may not be automatically assigning an ip address, you can try a static ip address instead.

If you are not familiar with networking [(which im not]) you can get help with ip addresses at www.xbox.xom/networkhelp."

I went to the website and followed their help steps to set up a static ip address, and that failed too.

i also got an error status report reading:

W: 0000-0021

againi i am on a wireless connection, and i dont even have a clue as to why i cant connect. I've been putting in the correct wep code and it  still doesnt let me connect. any help would be greatly appreciated. thanks
