Xbox internet

i just got an xbox pro and i need to connect it to ethernet. the closest and most manageable ethernet plug is in my comcast dvr cable box. i tried to plug it in but it didn't connect the xbox. is there a way to connect my xbox via the cable box at all?

  1. No, but if you have a network cable from your router going to the DVR, you can add a network switch to connect the xbox.
  2. The XBOX has to be connected to your wireless/wired Internet router, not the dvr. If running an Ethernet cable to your router isn't practical, you could consider using a wireless Ethernet bridge.
  3. That sux. I'm in a rented house so I can't drill a hole in the floor to connect the xbox and router and I'm not willing to spend much money on a wireless bridge. Any other suggetions? But thanks anyway

    The least expensive wireless Ethernet bridge I know of is the ASUS WL-520GU w/ dd-wrt or tomato third party firmware:

    At least it's reasonably priced.

    There's also powerline bridging:

    Besides running a wire, those are your options.
  5. Nice thanks I'll use the rebatE one
