Hi I have 3 computers that are hooked up to a LAN on a dsl modem and I have 1 computer in my room which is not hooked up directly to the modem and I got a free 2 months card for xbox live and want to know if I can just have the xbox in my room with it hooked directly into the back of my computer into the ethernet port.Or does it have to be connected directly to the modem or router?And does xbox live tie up my phone line or my dsl?

You can do this if your computer has two ethernet ports. Plug your XBox into one and your network into the other. Then you need to enable Internet connection sharing on your PC. You can find everything you need to know how to do this here.

What has a lan got to do with it, the lan is just your way of getting internet into all your systems.

If you connect the xbox into a pc with intenet access and bridge the connection what you are doing is putting the xbox onto your lan with internet access thus allowing it to connect to the internet. but bridging doesnt always work and the pc does have to be on.
