My son wants to run his X Box 360 on our internet connection.
It signal enters the PC via a modem. He has been told that we can buy an adapter/splitter. i.e one outlet for the PC and one for the X Box. is this possible or is there a better way?

Thanks Fruit Bat. I have been told there is a splitter that will allow the X Box to be used without having the PC switched on. Know anything?

To do that you will need a modem router.
You can then connect either with wire or wireless.

Its not just a case of plugging in a 2 way splitter then?

I don't think you can split the signal via a modem USB
