    You should be able to buy a 4/5 port ethernet switch and connect it directly to the output of your homeplug, and then connect your XBox and blue ray via ethernet to the switch.

    This would do it nicely (or similar, you might be able to find something cheaper):

    thanks i wasnt sure if a switch would work, only because i wasnt sure if my router that is connected via homeplug would be able to give each connection of the switch a ip address? or would it do some thing like

    router 192.168.0.1 then homeplug(switch) would be 192.168.0.2 then the swtich would give each device a gateway to its ip? or am i reading into it to much and loosing the plot?

    also would one of these do? i only have a 80mb home plug anyway so im thinking this should be able to handle it? also would i be able to use a spare router i have a netgear dg834gt as a switch?
