Okay, bare with me here but I just got new internet installed and the modem/ router combo was installed in my living room. I like to play my Xbox in my room and would prefer to have a wired connection if possible. I have a phone jack in my room that I could move the set up to but that would take away the signal for everyone else on the other side of the house. Can I take one of my old routers or modems and hook it up in my room and be able to have a wired connections on my Xbox?

    You could do that, but there seems to be no advantage over a directly wired connection other than having two wires that would be slightly shorter than one.

    It's been a while since I've checked competitive hardware, so newer/cheaper/better alternatives are likely available today. But I use AirLink powerline adapters to connect multiple rooms on three floor levels in my home. My older units are only rated at 54mbps, so not great for gaming. I think today you can get close to gigabit rates with good house wiring.

    Yes, you can do the same, while wired connection is more advantageous then wireless.
