ok, well i just went and bought a longer ethernet cable (the one provided wasnt long enough.)
problem is, what the heck do i do now? i plugged in one side of my ethernet cable in the back of my xbox 360, ran it along the wall, got to my surfboard sb4100 cable modem, and.... theres only one ethernet jack on it that is running to my computer. what the heck do i do now?

A router may the only solution. You could also waste a load of money on wireless components.

Pull your PC out and plug the Xbox in instead? It should be plug and play with Ethernet.

Yeah, should be able to, although I'm not guaranteeing it will work; you may need a router.

A router is the gateway on your network to other networks. Basically, it routes all devices on the network to an internet connection.

Let me tell you about woes. I bought my 360 last night, tried to run the ethernet cable through my laptop (connected to wireless internet). Took me 2+ hours wrong all because the Xbox got my DNS wrong. Should've only taken 5 minutes to fix. Oh well, Gears of War rules.
