  1. An ethernet cable is just a network cable. What you are looking for is the category of the cable. When you go to purchase one, ask for a CAT5 or CAT6 cable. They will know what you are talking about. Try to find a store with many cables and PC components. Cables can be expensive.

    Consider using Wireless. Your XBOX 360 is wireless capable. So, get a wireless router, instead. It will connect to your Cable Modem. I recommend that you get an affordable Linksys WRT54GS wireless router. It is easy to setup and is ready out of the box.

    Have your store representive go over the difference and advantages of using the cable over the wireless Linksys router.

    If cost is an issue then go with the cable. I purchased a 14 foot CAT5 cable and it cost me $14. So, the longer it is the more expensive it will be. A Linksys router is affordable but you will spend more money. You can probably get one for about $60 but then you might need an adapter for your XBOX. If you at least look at your choices you will see what you might want to do in the long run. Have fun!
