I'd like to keep the price limit under $30 ... what would you reccommend, if the above one isn't what you would want?

What Cables do I need? I have two NIC cards right now, with a crossover-cable going from the second one to the xbox. Can I use that Crossover cable to go from the second NIC card to the hub, and use four crossover cables to go from the hub to four xbox's?
Modem---direct port cable---> NIC1 -- NIC2 ---Crossover cable--- HUB

As for the cables, NONE of them should be crossover, all normal patch cables from here on in.
EDIT: Sorry, just checked again and it does have 5, therefore you can plug everything in to it.

yeah it's 5 ports so it should suit your needs. dunno if this one has autosensing but some can detect if you used a crossover or not and switch the connection accordingly so that you can use either cables.
but if you are buying cables, you use straight through and not crossovers.

also here's the 8 port version - not much more. http://www.newegg.co...&ATT=Networking
these are autosensing ports and you can use either a crossover or a regular patch cable.

EDIT: I have had no problems with Tigerdirect, and I bought 2 whole computers (in parts) from them. Even had to return a CPU fan and had no problems at all.
