I only have access to a coax cable in my room. What would be the easiest (and cheapest) way to get internet to my xbox? I do have access to the modem, but its too far away for me to just run an ethernet cable from it.

I think your best bet would probably be wireless, if you are unable to run an Ethernet cable to your room.

So is there anything that I can get that receives the wifi signal that I can plug the ethernet cable into?

On the one side, you'll need a wireless router sending the signal. And on the other side (PC) you could use something like a USB Wireless Adapter to receive the signal. If you want me to find you some hardware please let me know and I will take a look at some websites. Don't forget to include what country you live in, if you want me to take a look.

I would really appreciate it if you could. I have a router sending the signal and I have a pc; can I really just hook my xbox up to my pc and run the connection through it?
