Hey all,

I have one ethernet connection in my room that comes from the Homeplug. That currently goes to my macbook, but I need another ethernet connection that goes across the room to my Xbox 360.

I saw the Ethernet Switches - Is that essentially an ethernet splitter?

Thanks,

Marky

Thanks :)

EDIT: Are there any switches that don't require additional power to them?

Is there anyway, other than buying a homeplug with two ethernet ports (I think they exist :p) or will I have to buy a 5 port switch?

I think it'll be a cese of a 5 port switch, I vaguely remember seeing a usb powered switch a while back, which might help if you don't want to have it plugged into the mains (most PC's can leave the usb ports powered when the machine is "off").
