ok, i want to get xbox live, but i dont know how to connect the xbox to my internet connection. I have my computer right next to my xbox in my room, and we have internet in our house by a wireless network. The router is downstairs in another room, too far to connect it to my xbox upstairs. So with my computer next to my xbox with the wireless internet network upstairs, how would i get my xbox live connected? without buying the wireless xbox adapter thing....would i need to buy another router or something?

If your computer has Windows XP, and an Ethernet NIC, then you should be able to use Internet Connection Sharing. I don't know how IPs are setup on the X-Box, and you may need to get a crossover ethernet cable.

Getting a router, or X-Box wireless adapter will likely save you a LOT of headaches.

cuz if a router is wut i need then that would be alot cheaper than the wireless adapter... and Monster that sounds confusing, so i think i will just buy a router, thanks
