First off great job Ubuntu team on all of the work you have done. You have created a really amazing (better than windows) and stable system.

Now my problem is simple, I am connected to the internet through a wireless network. I want to put my X box 360 in the same room as my computer. I have a Ethernet slot open to connect the X box. How do I use my computer as a router to the Xbox wile still having internet connection?

Thank you.

Wow nice response time!!

I don't have my Xbox just yet but I would have it in a few days (just trying to get some ideas). Anyways what you gave me although it seems to be very good, I found something else that I think deals with my problem better.
