I'm getting a new computer; ditching my old 2004 computer. I will have Windows 7 Media Center installed on the new computer. Can video/photo files be transferred with Media Center from the PC to the Xbox through the Residential Gateway? Or do I need a separate router to transfer the files without going through the Gateway? See image below. I've had trouble adding an additional router to the Gateway when it was intially installed.
Sorry if this is an elementary question to others.... but I am just a simple caveman... Thanks!

You do not need extra equipment, unless you are out of ports on the RG, then you need a Switch. Suggest the Netgear GS series. Set top boxes need to either plug directly into the RG, or their own Swtich (again the GS series from Netgear).

Stimpy: So what'll happen?
Ren: That's just it. We don't know. Maybe something bad, maybe something good. I guess we'll never know, 'cause you're going to guard it. You won't touch it, will you?"
