I am trying to connect two x-box 360s together to play some games with my neighbor. I am just not sure on the type of cable needed. I believe I need a crossover cable but am not to sure. Before anyone says to google this, I have restricted internet access and all the sites that I think would solve my problem are blocked.

    Crossover cable indeed.

    If you're in a pinch and good with wires, you can try to make one yourself out of a normal cat-5. Cut her open, and switch the green to yellow, and yellow to green. There's four of those wires, make sure you keep striped with stripe.

    You could also just use a router.

    You can get little adapters that turn a regular ethernet cable into a crossover.

    But an actual crossover cable is cheaper than those adapters.

    The 360's Ethernet ports are auto-MDIX. Crossover cables are not necessary; plain straight-through patch cables are sufficient.

    Thanks alot the patch cable works great between two of the systems. The only problem now is that the jack for the ethernet cable on my xbox is loos and the cable doesn't connect. Is there any way to hook the other two xboxs to a wireless router and use the wireless adapter I got for mine and connect all three?

    Yeah, that would work fine.
