How many of you are running Xbox Live with ICS instead of a Router?

    Well, I heard you can use internet connection sharing with 2 network cards in your computer. You connect a crossover cable from one network card to the xbox. Since I have an extra NIC lying around, buying a crossover cable would be a hell of a lot cheaper than a router!

    Anyone here running a setup like this? Any troubles?

    You can do it that way but the setup can be a little tough especially if you are running any type of firewall setup, I can walk you through it but a router is the best way to go if you don't want your computer turned on all the time.
