you need a cable/dsl router

by jdclyde In reply to setup gateway for xbox 36 ...

go to any office supply store, computer store, or your favorite online supplier. I like tigerdirect.com for things like that.

THAT plugs into into the cable "modem", and your pc and xbox plug into that.

a router will run you anywhere from 30 to 80 for a low end system. linksys and netgear are both decent names for your home network, but you can get away with less. I have personally found dlinks burn up after a year or two, and will not be purchasing any more of their router products.
