I currently have a Belkin switch (i'm too poor to upgrade to a router smile.gif
And everything works great when I disconnect my pc cable and change my PC's IP to become a gateway for the xbox. But in Windows XP there's an Alternate Configuration opetion in TCP/IP properties where i can type in another IP, etc.....is there a way to store an alternative ip there so when i want to connect to the xbox, i just switch with 1 click or whatever, without having to retype the 192.x.x.x ip for my computer all the time?! Thanx

Well since your using WinXP it's not that hard as long as you don't mind a bit of dos.
First set your computer to the first configuration you would like to save.
run cmd
netsh dump >configA.txt
Set your computer to the x box config you would like to save and
run cmd
netsh dump >configB.txt

Move the txt files to a dir of your choice, I use c:\config
To reload your settings create a batch menu or just a pair of shortcuts.
For Normal
%windir%\System32\netsh.exe -f c:\config\configA.txt
For Xbox
%windir%\System32\netsh.exe -f c:\config\configB.txt

you could as well set 2 ips on your network card and that would do it
