What does this message really mean....

"Due to your current network setup, you will be unable to host multiplayer games"

and when I even try to join games, I can't

Check your network settings in the 'System' blade of the dashboard, sometimes they will mess things up for online play.

If you can play other games online then don't bother with that, the game is more likely the culprit. Maybe you could try switching the disc? If you know a friend with the game, ask to borrow their disc and try playing online on that one, or just go to wherever you bought it and swap it for a fresh disc.

Could it be that I am using the wireless adapter on campus, and not using my own router/connection but leeching off someone elses?

Yes, this is probably linked to the fact that you're running off a weaker connection.

Yeah its probably based on NAT settings. Won't bore you with the details but as its wireless its probably a dynamic IP.... yada yada yada.. Strict this, Moderate that.
