Tricks to link 360 and regular Xbox?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Is there any trick to setting up a LAN with a mixture of Xbox's and Xbox 360's?? Is it any different from a standard LAN with Xbox's??

I found something online that said you can, but you have to use crossover cable not standard ethernet cable? But that makes no sense and it seemed to switch terminology randomly.

I don't see why it wouldn't work, but this is Microsoft we're talking about so I figured I would ask before I got a big group together nothign worked.

It should work fine, me and my friends alway play halo 2 with 2 360's and 2 normal xbox plugged into a hub. And it works fine.

Look at my uber-diagram:

Xb
|
X360----HUB ----Xb
|
X360
(all cables here are regular ethernet)
OR
X360 ------ Xb (this cable is a crossover)

I think the spacing on the ubber diagram is off

But yeah, that's the basic setup I was thinking.

The spacing was right when I typed it, but it got messed up when I posted.

It is still an uber diagram, though.
