People use the 360 for more than just gaming!

As a media center extender for windows media center I can not stream High bit rate blue ray movies through my 360 extender without getting studdering of the picture and I believe that the 100MB nic could be the bottle neck as some blue rays burst up to 30MB + , either the nic or the 360's internals can handle the data rate.

According to the Gizmodo review, "the new Xbox 360 sadly doesn't have gigabit ethernet to speed networking up."

Sorry :(

I tested it with my router (NETGEAR WNDR 3700 Gigabit/Dual Band N router (A/B/G/N). the NIC only tested at 100Mbps. It is not a Gigabit NIC at all. What also does not make sense is that the WIFI card is not dual band. It only works on th b/G/N (2.4ghz) band. The 5.8 ghz A/N band is much more suitable for media so this is big time mistake on Micro$oft's part.

The add on card they sell for the old 360 is A/B/G/N compatible, go figure what the &@$% they were thinking with the built in wifi card and NIC on the XBOX 360 S.

There is a reason why it only has 100Mbps. There is no DSL service that needs more....

Update

Use 802.11n WiFi. It's faster.

Microsoft and fast reliable networking - now that's a silly idea only dreamed of by fools.

I use Virgin Media cable for my internet - 100Mb - so already the slow network adapter on the x-box can't give me my full internet bandwidth. Wireless is a waste of space unless you can use 5Ghz range.

Microsoft need to wake-up and smell the future, overlooking the fact that in real terms networking speeds are quoted to include both directions - so 100Mb in reality is only 50Mb not taking in to account any deduction for overhead.

Not very good and so not future proof.

This is its own question. It shouldn't be an answer here. Also, cat5e is a type of cable. The jack is called RJ45.
