I realize this may belong in hardware but I found very few xbl threads over there. I figured out how to check my connection speed with xbox live so my question is what kind of download and upload speeds do I need for a reliable connection? Also I have a question about homenetworking. I live in a University owned house and our internet comes from a cable modem connection fromt the local cable company. The cable modem for the house is already connected to a router in the basement which connects to the jack in my room. Can I have both my computer and the xbox online at the same time by just using a hub (since the house already has a router) or do I need to connect a router to the jack in my room.
