    So you have two NIC's, once connected to a Cable modem / Internet, the other to your X-BOX. Normally, the Cable NIC is OK, but when you plug in your X-Box into the other NIC the cable NIC drops?

    Is this right? What OS are you using BTW?

    If its XP, Have you enabled Internect connection sharing on the Cable NIC? Is the cable NIC DHCP (do you get your IP addresses automatically on the cable NIC)? Does it show as disconnected in the Task Bar?
