Hi, my chip's coming tomorrow. and I want to know what type of cable I should be using to conenct to my xbox. Will a regular cat 5 work, or should I use a crossover cable? I've had success going from PC to PC by having one be the DHCP server for the other. Can I do the same with an xbox, or should I set the IPs manually and use a crossover cable?

PC to Xbox = Crossover

Pc to (any device) to xbox = Straight through.

DHCP or static, either should work.
