    As far as I know you won't be able to have the netgear box connected to the phone line at the same time as the homehub. The ADSL network connection will only work with one modem at a time.

    Your homehub will probably have one or more ethernet ports on it. That's what you want to plug your x-box into. But your x-box is upstairs and your hub is downstairs. Easiest way would be to buy a couple of homeplugs - but that will set you back about £40.

    +1 on the homeplugs, been using them for a long time now with no problems at all.

    Ok, would i be better off just buying the wireless adapter for the xbox then? or are the homeplugs better?
