    I have just been asked by my brother, to hook up an ethernet connection from
    the back of my router to his bedroom to connect to his XBox.

    How intense will the use of my broadband become if I give him access to do
    this?

    I am on a 2meg service and there is an FUP in place in the evenings... Is
    his connection likely to affect my browsing speeds or stop me accessing the
    net altogether when hes gaming?

    Is his gaming likely to fall foul of the FUP in the evening?

    TIA

    Unless he is downloading demos all the time, xbox live really does not take
    up that much even with voice communications.
    Ask him to stick to gaming in the evenings and download demos at quiet times
    then I doubt you will fall foul of any FUP.

    Thanks for that.

    I assume you are familiar with the XBox then?

    If you are, can it be setup to access the internet connection via a proxy
    server?
    If it can what protocol does it use?

    Thanks again

    You should be ok, but be aware the demos are normally around 800meg to
    1gig, so make sure he keeps an eye on it, and ask him for half the price
    of the connection, why pay for all of it when he is using it also.
