You will need to get the wireless adapter for the Xbox (I don't think it is included normally). Get the fastest one you can. The other issue will be the speed of your current wireless router. You will want a G or and N, my son could use Xbox live on our old wireless B router but it wasn't fast enough for streaming video.

jwhitmore44 is correct, you need an adapter. They are expensive. I got a 50' cat6 cable from monoprice.com http://www.monoprice.com/products/product.asp?c_id=102&cp_id=10232&cs_id=1023213&p_id=2323&seq=1&format=2and ran it straight to my gateway (router) and it worked great (no adapter). Just have to run the wires behind the wall. The cable was $6.50 plus shipping.
