hi! Gals and boys!
I am looking into opening an Internet cafe with xbox, ps2 and pc gaming, I can do all the administration work as far as networking of pcs goes but to connect xbox or ps2 to the network and administrate it like time seasons etc. is not my cup of tea as I have never done it! but ofcourse can adapt to it easily so if any help is provided in this regards will be much appreciated! Thank you.

Sounds good but I think you would need multiple internet connections to use multiple xboxes. I may be wrong, but at home for example I think each xbox needs it's own IP address. This might push the cost up too much? Maybe I'm totally wrong!

I thought you could just use a router, might be wrong, i dont own an xbox.

But it is quite possible each xbox will need its own gold subscription to xbox live (each is about £25 for a year i think).


Where abouts are you going to set this place up?

east mids, and yes router would be ideal I think for the multi ip addresses.
