    What you could do, is connect the modem from the USB to your PC and by rights you should have another port on the modem to connect a crossover to your xbox and they can both be on the internet.

    But this is a bad idea if you plan to transfer files from the xbox to the PC because most modems have a max tranfer rate of 10mb over lan and it would be slow.
