Hi,
I have just started uni and am wanting to connect both my xbox and my PC to the network, but only have one ethernet port in my room.
Therefore, i'm after a network switch (also known as a ethernet switch). It only needs to be a 2 port one really, but anything will be considered!
Obviously i'm after a cheap one, it doenst matter how old it is or anything.

Look forward to your replies! Mark

I mean a network hub lol.

A switch???? Don't think you need one of those mate - a hub with an uplink port will do the trick.
I have a brand new 3com one if your interested box still sealed - think it is an 8 port one but will check

Bit expensive for what I was looking for, sorry. Not looking for wireless btw, only has to be wired!

Umm, that probably won't work since most Uni networks will only dish out one IP address per physical connection. The way I got around it in uni was to use a router, cloned the MAC address of the PC I setup my connection on and ran my two computers off the router.

Depends on your Uni's setup though. What uni do you go to and what's your IP address?

My uni will allow it, i've checked all that out, thanks for the advice though!
