alright are you hard wiring your xbox? Or using one of those things to let the xbox go wireless and to stream music XBMC definitely. All you need is either a router or a crossover cable to connect the xbox to comp, and you want wireless so just go with like a linksys or netgear wireless router. Once you get all set up then ask for help connecting to your box(which shouldnt be hard at all).
