Share single Ethernet connection with Pc + Xbox 360

Hey guys,

Right need assisiatnce with my Network!

Now its a bit complicated,Ive tried to make it as understanding as i can so please bear with me

I currently have a Virgin media Modem (VMNG300) and a Wireles-N-Router (WNR2000) connected to each other.

The Ethernet cable runs across the room from my Router stright into the back of my Pc...all works great!

However...now that i have aquired an Xbox 360 id also like to connect that to my Network,But i want it wired,I dont want to buy one of microsofts overpriced Wireless things,The problem is my Pc and Xbox are the opposite side of the room from the Router/Modem so i cant connect them like that.

I only have one Ethernet cable runing up to my pc where the Pc and Xbox are located.

What do i need to be able to Split an Ethernet connection between the Pc and Xbox?...at the moment ive been having to unplug the ethernet cable from the pc and put it in the Xbox.

I was wondering,I have another spare Router...can it be used as a HUB/Switch to share one thernet connection between two devices?
The other model of the router i have is -Netgear Wireless-G-Router WGR614 v9.

The simplest solution would be to run another cable from your router. Any reason why you wouldn't want to do that?

Hi,

Yes the reason i dont want to do that is because the router is the other side of the room,Id have to buy a very long ethernet cable which would probably cost more that that ethernet switch posted above.
