How did his reply help you?  I have been running into the same Wifi shield not present problem and nothing has gotten me any closer to when I started. Arduino Uno R3, Wireless SD and Xbee Module.  Tried IDE's 1.0.5 to 1.5.5, tried AD adapter power vs just USB, tried USB and Micro Serial Select, everything. 

Not real impressed with Arduino so far.  Unless I get a solution in the next day, I'm taking it all back and trying a Yun.

A Yun doesn't have wireless capabilities built in, so you still need a shield.

Post links to your hardware. While we know what the UNO is, you seem to expect us to know whether the Wireless SD shield is the official one, or not, and you seem to expect us to know which XBees you have and how you have configured them. Define what the other XBee is connected to.

Are the XBees really XBees? Or is the XBee a WiFi device?

Post your code.

Describe, in as much detail as you can, what is, and what is not, working and how you know that something is, or is not, working.

Without doing this, I don't think you'll be happy with the even-more-complex Yun, either.

That library is only for the WiFi shield, not for XBee. It should return "shield not present" because there is no wifi shield connected.

The Yun has built-in wifi, depending on the country you live in. That may be your best bet.
