    So i might get an xbox 360 for christmas and i only have on ethernet slot on my router thats is for my computer internet. Other than buying a network adapter ($100) is there a way to connect to Xbox live without an ethernet cable? Or if theres no pother possible way, how much is a router with 2 ethernet slots? P.S. I have a Motorola SBV5220 router.

    Is it your PC hooked up to the router with the cable or something else?

    Don't bump. Mods don't like it.
    You could buy a second network adapter for your computer and hook your 360 to your computer, with the connection set up similarly to when people do wireless through their laptop. Also keep in mind that the $100 MS wireless adapter will need a wireless switch somewhere hooked up, which it doesn't sound like you have.
    Or you could get a cheap network switch from somewhere like Newegg.

    maby get a USB wifi adapter for your PC or a WIFI PCI card that fits inside your pc (If you have a tower style pc) and a WIFI adapter for the 360 that should work [​IMG]

    That wifi adaper for 360 costs too fucking much. I use some powerline ethernet adapters that kick ass. Hell I even have a pair of old ones that I would give to you for free if you paid shipping. All you do is plug one into an outlet near your main router and connect it. Then plug the other one wherever your 360 is and you'll have an instant connection.

    Hmmm, one port on the router? You gonna need a switch. I had to get one, it has 5 ports and that was more than enough to go around.

    Pro Tip: Have more patience. You only wait 1 hours and 2 minutes before bumping and begging for help. We aren't always on, 24/7 to answer YOUR questions. News flash!: You aren't that important

    On topic: The network adaptor for the 360 isn't expensive if you can find a bargain. I got mine from eBay for £35.

    Im probably going to get a Switch. As for My ethernet cable, 1: How long does is the ethernet cable that comes with the 360? 2: If i un-plug the ethernet from my router that connects to my computer, and plug in the one connected to my 360, will my internet for 360 work?
