thats weird, i use xbl with a router, and its never said that.

is the ethernet cable you have a crossover cable.

if you hold the cable ends so the copper is facing you(tab away), what color do you see to the far left, on each end of the ethernet cable?

Go into the router settings, and assign IP'* to specific devices. Assign the xbox to xxx.xxx.x.2 and the PC to xxx.xxx.x.5 for example..

You'll have to use the computer and surf to it through an internet browser, look in the manual for how to set it up.
