Hello everybody. I'm trying to set up a bit of a 16 player session at my house. We've got 4 leads, 4 Xboxes and 4 copies of Halo - the only thing that we are missing is a HUB to enable us to link the four Xboxes together via the leads we already have. Can anyone please tell me where I might be able to buy one? I've looked online and found this product:

Is this what I need? Thanks. Benno

NO. That is definately not what you want. That is for using more than one type of console on one TV. You want something like this (http://www.linksys.com/products/product.asp?grid=24&prid=148).

A hub is a poor choice...unless you're trying to get lag. You need a switch.

I’ve never experienced lag on a LAN period. A hub will do fine. Although a switch will reduce lag for net play. So I'm told………
