    I've been having serious headaches with NTL and an XBox. Firstly when I asked for advice on connecting my XBox to the live service, I was repeatadly told that I would definatly have to get a broadband and console package, which I knew was false. Question is, how can this be done, I have tried an ICS setup but it refuses to work (all settings have been set-up and works fine with another PC). I now want to try a router setup but on a budget of £50 max including all cables, this would include the router and cables to connect the router to modem (usb and ethernet ports), and ethernet leads to connect 2 pcs and an XBox together, could anybody give me some help, and a place to buy them from.

    Thanks,
    Rich

    What I do is when I use the xbox I take the PC ethernet out of the modem replace it with the xbox ethernet, turn the modem off for about 10 seconds and then play on line.
    If i want to use the PC I do the same remove xbox ethernet and replace it with pc ethernet and turn the modem off for about 10 seconds.
