Have you tried putting your wireless router into mixed mode (maybe the XIOS doesn't support n for example)?
Does your wireless network appear in the popup listing? If not, make sure SSID broadcast (also called Visibility) is enabled. If it appears but won't connect, make sure you don't have features like "restrict by MAC address" enabled on your router.
When you say it won't connect to the internet, do you mean it successfully connects to your wireless network but then you can't access internet sites (youtube, etc)? If so, this would actually indicate a configuration issue, where the router is blocking internet access (perhaps through a QoS setting).
Do you have a phone that supports tethering through a wireless hotspot? If so, enable it and put your phone near the XIOS and see if you can connect to that wireless network as a sanity check.

Here's what I did to get it to work:
- Change skin to the XIOS skin (the wireless network popup listing does not appear unless you temporarily use this yellow and black skin!)
- Navigate to System -> Internet Access
- Select the first item on the right: "Network Connection" (this will say either say Wired or Not Connected)
- Click on this item (center button on remote) - this causes a popup to appear listing wireless networks.
- Select your network and enter the password (if needed).
- Change the skin back to your previous skin (your network configuration will be retained).
I should point out that when I tried this, videos that play fine on wired would stutter after I switched to wireless, but this is nothing new for me, as I have other devices that do streaming and they have the same issue.
I should also mention that the first time I brought up the wireless network popup, the firmware reset itself, but it worked fine the second and subsequent times I brought up this popup.
