would this work?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I have a router and 3 PC's connected to it, in each room there is a phone socket in the wall which is connected to the router.

At the moment whenever i want to use Xbox live, i have to switch the cable from phone socket to PC to phone socket to Xbox, my question is would i be able to simply add a splitter to the phone socket and then have 1 cable going off to the PC and one to the Xbox?

Ive drawn a little diagram as well to try and show you what i mean, there is one free socket on the router, and the red box is the splitter, would this work?

Why just not plug the xbox into the free slot in the router?

You could just buy another Cat5e cable

AFAIK that won't work because it would conflict too much causing 1 or the other to be disconnected because of TCP/IP settings. Unless you could maybe assign each a static IP. I dunno im not too knowledgeable on networking.

because the router is under the stairs downstairs and Xbox is in my bedroom upstairs, i could do that, but it would mean wiring another connection through the attic from the router which takes quite a while, would be easier to use a splitter but don't think its going to work that way.....


edit: and my PC already has a static IP and as far as i know so does the Xbox???

No, there would be an IP conflict I believe. You could get a hub and run a cable from the wall to the hub and from the hub to the PC and X Box. Or, you could get a nic card and run the cable from the wall to the OC and from the PC to the X Box, but I think the HUB is easier and would give better performance.



edit: I think you could use static IP's, but that can be a pain too. It is much easier to use dynamic, but I am also a networkingh noob.

Well I guess we'd need to know, is that red box just a splitter? or a switch?

Well, I'm no TCP/IP or networking wizzad, but I know you can run a switch off of a router without a problem.

If you have a spare NIC card you could throw that into the PC and share the internet through your PC. You would need a crossover cable for that and your PC will have to be on in order for you to get internet on your xbox.
