Try running the "Restore to factory defaults" function on the Xbox. It is in the Network Settings under Additional Settings. then try your connection again.

Also, make sure there are no duplicate SSIDs nearby (networks with the same name).  Make sure your SSID is unique.

If any Xbox Slims show that error it will be a hardware fault no doubt. You should return it to store or to Microsoft

Yeah, that should not be happening, on the slim because the wireless network controller is built in.  I wonder if xbox  uses the same type of adapters as they do in laptops.  If they do, your wireless controller may have come loose.  It could also be a software fault, like a driver is going wonky on you.  Try to reinstall the most recent system update like unicron suggested, it just might work.

If it works when you start your console and goes haywire after the box heats up a bit then I'd have to say it's probably a hardware issue.

@ unicron  - I just took a peek at the wireless controller on AnandTech dot you know what.  It is attached to the chassis with a torx scrue (apparently this site objects to the conventional spelling of s crew), so little chance of it creeping out.  Maybe oxidized contacts or cold solder joints then.  I am also wondering if the slim has some sort of problem going on with the USB controller.  I recently tried to update my xbox with a USB flash drive (actually, three different ones) and it failed.
