      I tried HP's once but for some reason they wouldn't talk to each other, even though they are on the same ring.
      got some others in different parts of the house that work fine.

      So for Xbox I've stuck to wireless and never had issues.

      By the way last night I decided to fix my Xbox IP address (it was set to DHCP before). Once I fixed it I got poor NAT results (it was ok via DHCP) so I went through and opened up all the relevant ports and forwarded it to the Xbox IP address and everything worked fine again. Maybe try opening up all the ports (I think there are a couple more to open)
      Just upgraded my 80mbps homeplugs to 200mbps - massive difference. Windows Emdia reports excellent connection (full bars) whilts it was on poor before
