Just wondering if anyone can help me out here, as im not very good with wiring, etc.
I have Irish Broadband. I want to get Xbox Live, however, the little black box thing (i believe its called a modem) that they gave me only has one Ethernet socket.
Right now, i don't mind whipping it out (the ethernet cable, that is) from the back of the PC and putting it into the 360, as they are pretty much right beside each other. However, come next week, the 360 and the PC will be on opposite sides of the room. The ethernet cable doesn't reach and i don't want the hassle of having to unplug the wire and keep moving it around.
Can anyone tell me a good, quick way around doing this?
I found this on ebay:
but the item description confuses me

Random googling suggests i buy a router, but i don't even know what that is
Also, when/if i do find something that will help, I'm going to have to buy another ethernet cable (for the xbox to the modem). I noticed on ebay there are a few different colours available. Does colour mean anything? or is it just for decoration?
Thanks a lot for any help i can get with this.
