No...you'll need a HUB or Switch. This is what you do:

Connect your Broadband modem into the uplink port on the HUB with a standard CAT 5 cable.

Next, run a seperate CAT 5 cable from any port other than the uplink port into the ethernet port on your CPU.

Finally, run a final standard CAT 5 cable from any port other than the uplink port into the back of your XBox. A green LED will light up right above the input.

Download Gamespy Arcade Software
Dowload Gamesy Tunnel Software

Then, you're set! To get the software, go to www.gamespy.com

:D

So the only way to play Halo online against other users right now would be to hook it up through my PC?????

ya, you launch the game through your pc then walk (or run) over to the xbox and go to multiplayer and then system link. then if your the host you set up the game and wait for everyone else. Hope that helps :)
