Default Connecting an xbox and still be able to access the internet

Ok, this is starting to drive me insane.

I have recently moved house, and I connect wirelessly to the internet. I do not have access to the router so do not even know what kind it is.

I want to be able to transfer files to my xbox, which is set up to do that. I have connected the xbox to pc's NIC via a cross over cable. It registers the connection, and now here is where the problem is.

When I turn the xbox on, it connects to the network, no problem there, however I lose my internet access for some reason through the wireless card, does anyone have any suggestions?

EDIT:Ok that will teach me, it turns out it was a problem with conflicting ips, so that when I switched on the xbox it formed the network but conflicted with the internet connection by changing the IP address it resolves the issue.

AMD Athlon 64, 2200 (11x200) 3700+,ASRock 939S56-M, SiS 756 AMD Hammer,NVIDIA GeForce 6600LE, 2048(DDR SDRAM), Maxtor 5A300J0 300GB 5400RPM, Ultra ATA/133)

Time tells all, but if the moment in time passes and you miss it, then you will remember it for ever!!

I'm no genuis( i cant even spell it haha) but maybe your NIC is trying to read your xbox as an internet source cancelling out your wireless signal. Anyone correct me if im wrong.
