Well, here's the deal. Thinking of getting XBConnect within the next few months (it's free and I don't have a credit card to use for Live).

Anyway, my Cable internet is hooked up through a non wireless router. The PC is on the first floor, we have a second PC on the second floor (which my dad had to run wires through the wall to hook up, was a lot of work), and the Xbox is in the basement. What would be the easiest way to get to the Xbox? Run an extension cord along the edge of the wall and down the stairs?

$150 is a bit much right now, I might see if it's not too hard to go through the wall to get down there though.

My situation is kinda like yours. Just some Cat5 and run it to your box. I have to rewire everytime, which is a pain, but it's worht it.

Cool. If so I'll try to be on XBConnect pretty soon. Live I'd need the money first and I'd need to convince the parents their card wouldn't be charged (that might take a lot of explaining).
