My son just got the Live upgrade for his Xbox.
We have high speed cable internet going to a cable modem and router, then to three computers in the house.
My son has one of the computers in his room, fed by a 50'+ cat 5 cable.
Is there an easier way to get the Xbox on line without running another cat 5 to his room from the router, or manually unplugging/switching the connection in his room?
Can an ethernet switcher be used (after the router, in his room) to split the signal up here? He doesn't need both on-line simultaneously. If so, any recomendations?
