Depending on brand, u may need one adapter for ur xbox (ethernet-to-power conversion) and another one at ur switch/hub/router (power-to-ethernet)
Usually it works well, but beware that sometimes some equipments have problems to cross circuit-breakers. Other problem is high-noisy equipments on same circuits, such as blender or vacuum-cleaners
About security: Does it have any security? such as a "wep" as wireless networks? Without this, u better take care of ur passwords
FORMAT C: Yes ...Yes??? ...Nooooo!!! ^C ^C ^C ^C ^C
If I die before I sleep, I pray the Lord my soul to encrypt.
If I die before I wake, I pray the Lord my soul to brake.

the router should have security, Once you give nic card access for xbox close the ssid# or its equal.that way no one can connect to that wireless access point!
hope it helps if not just disregard...
