If anything, that's gotta be the greatest thread title ever, right? Ok, i posted this on another board, but wanted to see if i could get help here as well. If this breaks some rule or anything, my most humblist apologies.
----

Ok, heres the deal .. this is what i want to do, and i need to know:

1. Can i do it.
2. How do i do it.

And dumify it, cuz this ol' bastard needs it that way.

I want to be able to hook my X-box up to my DSL WHILE still having my PC hooked up ... without paying for a second hookup ...

Is this possible?

AND

How

First person to help me, gets 1,000,000 points. And gets to sing a song with Drew.

Yes, you can.

Here's a link from the xbox site with instructions.

http://www.xbox.com/en-nz/live/start/connect/router/default.htm

If you are going to buy it online, why not use the "Spend" link at the top of the screen to pick one up at Amazon.com or Walmart.com?

//edit: In the Walmart.com search box, try this one. BEFSR41 It's about $50.

EDIT #2:

If you have to have your PC on to connect, you may need to use Internet Connection Sharing in Windows.

http://www.xbox.com/en-NZ/live/start/connect/sharedpc/

That's pretty much the two options that work.
