The NIC is onboard last time I checked and I don't see how you could possibly hook it up with USB since your NIC is fried (how in the hell are you going to get data coming or going when your once source for doing that is fried)? You might want to simply sell of your XBOX (list that it has a fried NIC) and use the money to buy a new XBOX and mod it.

my nic is fried not my controller ports, so i could still use a usb port and possibly hook up a usb ethernet adapter?

u can desolder it and possibly replace it...I tried to put a 1gig port init but it didn't reconize it so i just soldered the old nic back on and it works fine
