    i was wondering if it is possible to go on the internet while my xbox is still connected to my computer.. I want to try craxtion4 but i have been told that m$ do sweeps and that I could possibly loose my dashboard (i have slayers).. I have no dramas in makng my back-ups but i just wanted to try some of craxtion4's other features.. I am not interested on going 'LIVE'..
    Thanks in advance for any information

    shall i speak slowly for you??

    can i go on the internet while my xbox and computer are connected safely without the risk of losing my xbox dashboard????

    i am fully aware craxtion can be used on or off the net but i would like to try a few other functions i have been reading about..

    If you are only interested in making what i presume you think are smart comments then dont bother replying.. I would rather not know...

    hi
    Use Linksbox, its a pretty stable web broswer for the xbox.
    Can get it from the usual places (its also on my installer)
    Im not completely sure if thats what you meant.
    If you're browse though your pc, whilst still connected to your xbox, your xbox dash should be fine.

    I have three nic cards in my computer. One for my xbox connection and one for my interNet fast cable connection. and the third one is not used for anything.

    I can not hook my computer to my xbox while my interNet nic card is abled. I have to disable one while using the other.

    If I want to go online, I have to disable the xbox nic card. And if I want to go to my xbox I have to disable the InterNet nic.

    I do not know about a phone connection as I use the ethernet card to hook to the interNet.

    If you know of a way to have both connections running at the same time please post it..

    Thank you.

    Sounds like you got a configuration issue. Is that the sole computer on that network? If so, what are the ip addresses/gateways/subnet masks of the 3 NIC's.

    Also, a $20 workgroup switch/hub can also fix your problems.

    Go with a switch / router. Much less hastle, and easier to make changes to / monitor / filter etc..
