depends.. I think you use simple crossover if you are linking 2 xboxes directly to eachother with no hub.. it might be a different story for the one to the PC or to a hub.

yes, the System Link cable is nothing more than a normal run of the mill crossover cable. If all you want to do is connect to your PC or to another Xbox, that is all you need.


If you do not have a crossover cable, you can use 2 ethernet wires and a hub in between (which will act as the crossover) and then connect to another xbox or your PC that way.

Or of course, if you look up a guide so you make sure to choose the proper wires, you can cut an ethernet cable open, cross wires, and tape it back together.

Hugs,
Sturbing.
