You use a cross-over when connecting direct from PC to Xbox or Xbox to Xbox, although with most modern PCs it will detect the cable connection type and modify the output channels used accordingly ie. PC to Xbox it should not matter what cable type you use.

If you're connecting via a router then standard patch cables should be used PC to router and Xbox to router just to be certain but, again, with modern set ups it should not really matter for the same reason.

The typical problem you get is with choice of using a Static IP or DHCP with the Xbox.

Despite the fact I have a set up that is identical to one that worked with my old WinXP laptop when I moved onto a Win7 desktop I couldn't, and still can't, get a Static IP address to work direct or via a router with any cable type.

With the old laptop I always used a Static IP with direct connection using a cross-over cable. But, ironically, DHCP via exactly the same router I'm still using just wouldn't work with that.

Believe me I've tried every suggestion I've found in online articles to get the Win7 desktop to work with a Static IP. But via the router and set to use DHCP the network connection is recognised immediately, an IP address is assigned and it connects first time as reliably as the (same) Xbox did direct to the WinXP laptop.
