Is it possible to get an adaptor so i can have 1 network cable going to my Xbox 360 and 1 for my LAN with another computer?

I only have one port, any ideas?

Hi

Will that work if I want to split my cable broadband connection into 2 also?

i.e. I have a NTL/Virgin modem with 1 ethernet port but I want to split this into 2 so I can plug my wifi modem and another ethernet cable and still get BB down both cables?!!

(idea being the wifi keeps crashing out when i use newsgroups so I want to use the cable directly from the modem to 1 computer for newsgroups but allow wifi to work for the other computer in the house)

thanks!

I would have thought that you want a "cable compatible" (wired or wireless with the wireless feature turned off) router for the hardwired connection to the PC.

Hi Chris

I'm not sure what you mean about getting a router for the hardwired connection- the problem is I have 1 port on my cable modem and I want 2!!
I want a connection to my wifi router and I want a connection to my laptop directly using a LAN cable!

SO I'm confused by your suggestion :confused::confused:!!!

Our cable modem goes to a Linksys BEFSR41 router/switch combo box.
The cable modem is connected to its WAN port and 2 PCs are connected to its LAN ports.
You can do the same sort of thing.
Your WiFi router can connect to one LAN port, your laptop can use another of its LAN ports.

Thanks :)

Will any switch do- (as mentioned above -http://www.ebuyer.com/UK/product/60063 - or does it have to be similar to your linksys switch-router?!
