Are u wanting xbox live or somthing? Cause there is 3 ways to connect to xbox live. If you are wanting to use the usb modem way, You will require a ethernet card in the back of your pc. Then you need a cross over ethernet cable to go from the back of your xbox and then into the ethernet card in your pc. Enable internet sharing in network settings. And xbox live should work.

It should explain more at www.xbox.com

Pm me for any more information

Yup, you have a choice of 3 methods of connecting an Xbox to the PC...the first one being an Ethernet Card with USB modem which is by far the easiest way of doing it, which is what we had on our computer for the first year+ with Xbox Live. The only limitation is to play Xbox Live, which I'm presuming is what you want to do, with that method, you need to have your PC switched on at the same time.

If you don't want to do that, a router is worth an investment, which is what we changed to about the same time as I signed up withj PlusNet. (Again needing an Ethernet Card)

I've never tried tried out a Direct Connection, but it isn't what you want anyway Smiley

Just a tip for anyone needing a long crossover cable.

Buy the length you need as a straight cable and also buy a short crossover say 1 metre and a cat 5 coupler which allows you to join the two cables together.
You now have a long crosssover cable. Cool
