Ok this is my current setup:

I have a CAT5 cable from my 1394 ethernet port from my motherboard going to my Linksys router, which is going to my dsl modem, which is going to the wall.

Now, my computer is in another part of the house where I want my xbox as well. My router is opposite my computer, so running a CAT5 from the router to the XBOX is out of the question. Although I have done it, and it works and I can find it on the network and everything.

My question:

Can I somehow hook my XBOX to my PC with one CAT5 cable (crossover or no?)? I don't necessarily need the internet, just the networking ability. I think I still have a Linksys PCI Ethernet card installed (which I am not using), so will hooking my XBOX to that using a crossover cable work? If so, what settings will I need?

Thanks guys and let me know if any of this doesn't make sense.

Should work all right with a cross-over cable - just network the two together as though they were both PCs and make sure the internet connection is shared. In XP's Help and Support section, read up about ICS.
