And most college campus's do not allow xbox live (anything but personal computers actually) so dont bother calling IT.

Make sure your port works...plug your computer in and make sure your port works.

when you have your pc and xbox hooked up behind the router, you can put your pc's mac address in as the routers (its usually burried in the advance options), making the network think the router is actually your computer, and get around the packetshaping that way.
there are cheaper ways to do it, but since you don't know what an ethernet jack is named, i'm not going to try to tell you how to do it with a cheapo linux box

I got a $20 router from the campus buy/sell website. a wired 4 port linksys one.
now, when i connect to the internet, the campus site comes up asking me to log on to identify my PC.
when i hook up the router, and hook up my pc. then i turn the pc on and the thing comes up. so i log on. Now what's happened (at least for me) is that the campus thinks my router is my pc, and i've just cleared my router.
so now anything i connect to the router (other pcs, or xbox) dont need to be checked by the campus.
that way i can play on XBconnect and Xlink Kai. dont have live though. Set it to DHCP (dynamic host something something) on the pc and xbox (which is the default).

Start Menu>>>Run>>>cmd>>>ipconfig -all
2 things of importance though,
1) You cant run both your computer and Xbox Live like this in most cases or else the server will see both of the same MAC addresses and might cause probs.
2) After setting the new MAC address, you MUST restart the Xbox for the changes to take effect.
I Followed these steps and didnt have any probs.

At my residence last year, each student was assigned an IP, which had to be entered into your computer as a Static IP as well. Since there is no way to enter a static IP into an xbox for Live, I needed to assign my Router as that IP.
Then, you can use any computers/xboxs/whatever on your network like normal, provided you have DHCP turned on.
I also had to get an SSH tunnel with the gateway by "signing in" with a computer and leaving the connection open, then I could use it like normal.
Sorry if that didn't make sense.
