    Alright, so i'm looking for a WIRED router. At the cheapest cost while not limiting my 100mbps speed. I was looking at this. But what would you guys recommend?


    Oh. My OS is Linux if that a factor or anything.

    Uhm..That isn't a "router" but I guess it does the job (I forgot the main differences between them tbh).

    I use that exact thing to split the connections from my main router to my two computers and my xbox, does a fantastic job.

    Just by a Lynksis router. They're not that expensive and they work wonderfully.

    you mean a linksys?

    Those things can be had for around $60 for a good one.

    If you're looking for something that handles many LAN connections, look for a good hub. I've once used a 64-connection hub for a small business.

    You may have to get a router to assign more than one IP. Try turning off everything, and doing a hard reset on the modem. Then turn on the 360, then the computer. If it doesn't, you MAY have to login to your modem to see if you have all your IP settings correct. If you do, you may HAVE to buy an actual router to assign each item an IP.

    You could also have your PC do it for you, if you bridge a home network through it, I've done it before, it's just easier to let a router do it for you.

    Your Xbox can't connect because you bought a switch, not a router.

    I was afraid this was going to happen. Oh well, I'm going to get off the video crack for a while, focus on my studies and get away from the all the idiotic socal engineering wana-be hackers on XBL. The switch does work for giving both my comps a connection, so i'll use it for that.
