We have a DSL connection with Qwest and our main computer is on the main level. I have an xbox upstairs and I would like to know what exactly I'd need to do to be able to connect to Xbox live (online gaming). Would I be able to just buy a cord (ethernet) and plug it into my wall, or would I really need to buy a wireless router before I could do all of this, or maybe another modem? Thanks for the help guys.

you need a network card in your pc,and a rj45 crossover cable to run from that in your pc,to your xbox,then go into your control panel and enable internet connection sharing,the xbox will share your pcs connection then,its how i do it,and i have no problems at all,xbox live is great fun if you can find like minded gamers and games YOU like.goodluck! ;)(www.xbox.com should tell you all you need to know my friend :tazz: )

Thats for the reply, burgy. I have one question though. What if I buy the Microsoft Xbox G router? It says that It can connect DSL connections and the like by just connecting that to my xbox and then the pc (downstairs) to this other thing. And then it would wirelessly connect my xbox. Is that an all in one package?
