Hi everyone.

This might sound bit stupid but i'll ask anyway to see if its possible. I've currently got the 10mb service with Virgin (ex telewest) which i have setup on home network for 3 pc's and an xbox 360. I do a lot of downloading so was thinking would it be possible to get another modem off ebay to hack that could still use the internet at a reasonable speed off the same line i've currently got by using a splitter just for the xbox 360?? Therefore stopping the online gaming being affected by downloads i do.


Thanks for any help you guys give me.
