Well I have a computer up and running with Internet perfectly fine, but my other computer for some reason doesn't want to work. It says something like limited or no connectivity :thumbsup: and when I try and repair it, it says problem renewing IP address...anyone have this problem before and know how to fix it? Ask questions please if I wasn't detail enough thanks in advance!

What you have there is a switch as opposed to a router or a hub. I found this in the manual:

Connectivity Testing
In the following procedure, you will test each port for a valid connection and to
confirm the correct operation of the network.
1. Start with Ports 1 and 2. Connect these two ports of a single switch to two
nodes or workstations and turn on the switch power.
2. Wait approximately 1-3 seconds for the auto-negotiation process to
complete after power-on or after the cables are reconnected.
3. Make sure the Link/Activity and other LEDs of both switch ports are lit.
4. After confirming that Port 1 and Port 2 are operational, reconnect one of
the nodes/workstations to another port, then repeat this connectivity test
with the switch’s remaining ports. Continue to verify the connection in
each port by checking the Link/Activity and other activity LEDs.
Note
Use Port 8 MDI-X connected to a workstation. Use Port 8 MDI
connected to a hub. Use only one Port 8 at a time.

You can download the manual in .pdf (Adobe) here

When you say it doesn't work do you mean it doesn't work at all? Take a look at this from DSL reports that talks about a firmware upgrade to make the Linksys compatable with XBox.

When you post back with the XBOX working let us know what the fix was so other people may benefit from knowing. Thanx.
