    29 quid for a HUB? That's expensive! At that price it should be a SWITCH.

    If you will only be using a hub for connecting XBOX to PC either follow Degszie's advice and get a NIC or get any old hub. They are all pretty much of a muchness now and are generally only limited by the processor/nics on the machine you are connecting (Not to mention the OS)

    I use a 24 port D-Link rackmount hub 10/100 (managed) and the best speed I can expect FTPing to my box is around 2.5megabytes per second. The hub can handle a lot more than this as I have tested previously. Winblows sucks at networking anyway and my processors are being thrashed with the services I run anyway.

    My advise (if you want to get a hub) : Buy a cheap one and try it. At 30 bucks you can try it out at least.. I am sure it would be fine. If you are getting one try to go for a 10/100 mbit hub instead of a straight 10 mbit as the XBOX can handle 100 nicely.

    Gooch, I've been looking into these things (as a novice) and I think I'm settled on [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] and I'll be buying it from [Only registered and activated users can see links. ], unless anyone else has any further advice..(?)
