    ok i need help with networking. I want to know if i can just take my RJ45 cable from my cable modem and connect my xbox directly to my pc without a hub or a router. Its not a crossover cable is that ok? And if i cant do this with a straight cable can i still connect directly with a crossover cable? Ive looked at tutorials and i dont have a hub or router like they tell you to use.
    If anyone knows anything on the subject id like some help please...

    No you cannot go from the modem to the xbox

    You need a RJ-45 crossover cable connected from your PC network card to your XBOX. This is how I am setup and it works great

    Hi, Ok first of all Im real sorry, you guys have probably said this stuff a million times, but Im new to xbox modding, and unfortunately, havent networked anything before, so treat me as a complete beginner.
    I can follow most of the xbox modding etc, except the networking, I notice SOME sites say I need a cable modem, some sites say I can connect direct to my computer via a network card, who is right?I live out in the country, and dont have a cable modem or high speed internet (boring old dialup)
    Also I have an asus a7n8x deluxe mainboard which I believe has an onboard nvidia NIC, can I connect my xbox direct to this via a crossover cable? (after I have installed evo x via a cdrw boot disc)
    Would appreciate any help
    please email !! (djboogie@graffiti.net)
    Thanks:)
