I guess im using my computer as a type of server. I only need one device (xbox) to connect to the internet to get Live. If Im using the ethernet adapter on the computer does it do a sort of signal correction since im using a patch cable to connect and thats why you need a cross-over cable to directly connect two xbox's together? It just seems odd. Because if I were to connect another computer to my computer via the ethernet adapter, then Id need a cross-over cable to do it, not a patch cable.
