The simple answer is no. This question gets asked alot. My suggestion is you both get your own internet connection.

I know, not what you wanted to hear. You can do it but those routers are kinda pricey. Above $250 new.

QoS might be what you are looking for. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quality_of_service

Depending on what router you have, you might be able to set up your xbox to have priority over the other connections. I was able to set up my vonage device that way. I hooked my Vonage device into my router, but the voice quality would go out the window when the internet was being used. By using QoS I was able to set the vonage device to the highest priority and the problem is solved. It's pretty cool. On my linksys router it was pretty easy to figure out.

What router do you have? Please include the make and model.
