View Full Version : *nothing to do with AC* Xbox Live problem though

12-29-2007, 03:29 PM
My computer is old, and it has an Ethernet port and a USB port. The usb port does nothing, so my modem is connected to my computer by Ethernet. Now, the Xbox 360 comes with an Ethernet cord, butu I only have 1 Ethernet port. Does this mean I can't be on the internet on my computer and on Xbox live at the same time? Probably does, but I wasn't sure if there were other ways to connect. Thanks for any advice.

Yes, its either one or the other.

Eh.. more along the lines of not spending money. At least not a lot of it. 17 year old with rent can't afford stuff unless it's a gift. lol How much do these things cost?

I think that's not very expensive as far as routers and ethernet hubs go

Yeah, that's not bad at all. I was thinking like twice to three times that much. Thanks.
