Specs: Windows XP
Can I run a network without a router? If so, can I just run a switch? The reason for this is that I cannot find a great compatable wired router to run xbox live, with out any issues. Is at all possible all i want to do is just run switches. No router if I can help it.

internet connection normally can't be done with a switch. You need to translate your isp given ip address to multiple ip addresses on your lan. A switch can't do this.

Not sure why you think you need a router that is compatable with xbox live.

Here is what microsoft has to say

You would open ports 80 and 53 in your router and forward ports
UDP 88
UDP 3074
TCP 3074
to the xbox live static ip address
