I have been looking at various posts here and have come to this question.....I want to play halo which is NOT live enabled....Can 2 xboxes see eachother in system link when both connected to the same router...or do you have to use a crossover cable and connect them directly?

Are you trying to play online, with XBC or Xlink, or are you just trying to play against your friend at your house?

If you are using a tunneling service, then you will need to use a router and can connect them both to the router.

If you are just trying to play your friend, then just get a crossover cable and connect them. Crossover cables are extremely cheap ($5 US at Radioshack) compared to setting up a network with a router.

I can make my own cables but the problem is my house is wired already for routers......I have a 4port linksys and a 4port wireless dlink.....I just want to play system link against my friends..And I dont want to have to run a 150 foot Crossover cable....Will the system link run through the router?
