I just got a new laptop, and want to share files with my desktop.

Since my XBOX is using my ETHERNET port, I thought I could use this USB adapter that adds an Ethernet port. Would that work?

What kind of cable would I use to connect them? Crossover or Regular?

Then could I see files from both computers in Windows Explorer?

Then, could my XBOX see files on the laptop?

It would go like this:

LAPTOP > Desktop > Xbox

I think what you want is a network switch.
