I'm about to sign up with a broadband ISP and get my networking hardware so I'll be set up when Xbox Live comes out, but there are some things that I'm not sure about. Right now, I have a PC(which fortunately already has the NIC card), and I'd like to set up a network that will work for both Xbox live and XBconnect(so I can play Halo too). What I've been able to scrounge from various threads is that I need some type of hub/router, and a few cat5 cables. However, I keep getting conflicting information as to what exactly I need. Some people say the hub works, whereas others say it doesn't. What's the cheapest solution here? I decided to go to http://www.national-tech.com/ for the cables after "sticker shock" at Best-Buy, and they appear to have several different types: STP, UTP, Cat5-E , normal Cat5. I'm looking to do this cheaply, so what are the cheapest cables that will work? Lastly, if anyone knows of any ISPs that have special deals running right now, or anything in particular I should look for, please post here. I have heard of certain ISPs not working with XBox Live so I need to make sure I don't sign up with one of them.
