I was talking to Blink182av and he told me how i can set up my router, blah blah blah

anyway i Found a Swtich for a good price but turns out that i need my computer connect to the internet at the same time as my xbox is on

Because, I use a program called XbOx connect. What IT does is basicly "tricks" my xbox to think its connect thru lan But is really connect to the internet. Hell i cant explain it here it tells you here http://www.XBconnect.com

What im asking is if there is something other than a switch that lets me use my Xbox And PC Internet at the same time?

A "hub" i think? idk

Errrr... You can't split Cat5 with a Y cable. You'd get all kinds of noise and cross talk.

make a carboard replica of the modem, put it in your room, and tell gramps that you cant fix his connection when he asks you when there is none

Just get a switch or a hub. It'll work fine as long as you have a router between it and the internet. Everything plugged into that hub will still receive its IP address through your main router. You're making this far more complicated than it needs to be.
