    I have just bought an xbox and would like to know the best way to connect to broadband please.
    I have an NTL cable modem connected to my PC via ehternet what is the best way to connect the xbox to the modem.
    NTL are doing a deal where pay £5 extra and they will give me an extra OSP address so I can use the PC and xbox at the same time. NTL will also offer discount on games up to £10 off new releases and offer 3 issues of the offical xbox magazine.

    I was not sure if I could just unplug the ethernet lead from the PC when not in use and just connect my xbox ethernet instead. I thought I had to pay the £5 because apprantly I have to register the xboxs MAC address with NTL.
