Hello,
I currently have my computer and my xbox connected right beside eachother ..
But there is only 1 ethernet cable available , Is it possible to connect it to my computer, and then send another line out from my computer to my xbox?

Yes you can, have the cable connecting you to the internet connected to one Ethernet jack on the computer, then connect a cable from the second Ethernet jack to the XBOX. After that go into windows and bridge the two Ethernet ports. After that you should be good to go.

What to do:
1. Install Windows Xp pro and Service Pack 2 with all other updates.
2. Install Ethernet card (if necessary)
3. Install router (if necessary)
4. Plug in crossover cable to ethernet card and to Xbox.
5. go to START>CONNECT TO>SHOW ALL CONNECTIONS (Can also be found in my computer>my network places> view network connections
6. right Click on wireless network connection and click on properties
7. Click on advanced tab
8. Check the box next to " Allow other network users to connect through this computer's internet connection" then click OK.
9. Right click on Local Area Connection the click on properties
10. Click on internet protocol (Tcp/Ip) then click on properties
11. Beside IP Address type in: 192.168.0.25
12. Beside Subnet mask type in: 255.255.255.0 (Remember the this IP and Subnet mask are different depending on the brand of the router. This configuration is set for Linksys routers.)
13. Click OK
14. Turn on xbox go into the internet settings and make sure it gets an Ip and subnet mask automatically. B/C You have already @ssigned it.
i did this using a netgear router, and then i did it wirelessly through my computer and wired

Bridging will work, I'm doing it now. I have internet in to one Ethernet port then the secon port is a cable from my desktop to my laptop. Both computers can access the net just fine.
