    If you get ip adresses from the cable modem (as I do) you can just use a switch instead of a router with DHCP. If you don't have it you can in theory use whatever router you want as long as it don't have any wierdo settings already.

    Get a router and plug in your modem to it. Then you can either wirelessly (or connect with a wire) connect your PC or your Xbox 360. With default settings, your Xbox 360 and/or PC will see the router (wirelessly). If you chose to hook up with a wire, then your computer will already be setup; simply plug in and play. I see no point in buying a switch unless you need more Ethernet ports for you router. IMO, just buy a router.

    @MultiForce - You know you can setup a router for a Static and Dynamic address, right?

    Was tired when I wrote that so I don't know what I meant with that reply
