Buy an inexpensive cable/dsl router, should be around $30-$40 and it'll give you at least 4 ports (1 for your computer, 1 for your Xbox360 and 2 extras). Plug the cable modem ethernet into the routers WAN port and your pc and 360 into the routers LAN ports.


You'll be able to use both at the same time and won't have to switch cable plugs constantly.
