I don't have a 360, but I still suspect I can answer your questions.

1: It would likely depend on how many players the game is set up to handle locally, which is probably rarely going to exceed 4.

2: No, but you could get a cheap switch/hub and an extra cable or two to avoid having to swap the connection all the time.

If online, it still probably depends on how many players the game developer allows. I can't say for sure, but I don't think there's a ceiling for all games, just limits imposed by whatever company is running the servers. Some may be lower, others higher, but I don't THINK there's a hard limit that applies to all games.

As I said, I don't have a 360... Halo 3 is about the only game I'd want, and can't say as it justifies the price of the console at present. So, if someone else has information to the contrary, by all means, post it.

Guys and the link...i do have a usb port on the modem so i suppose i could hook up xbox that way.Since usb 2.0 is 400 mps i would guess its faster than 360s 10/100 mps unless its gigabit ethernet.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
