What equipment do I need?

I currently have dsl with two computers connected to the modem. The modem (2wire Homeportal 1000) has one USB port and one ethernet port. I want to add my sons Xbox 360 to the network so that he can go online. I've been told that wireless is too slow for gaming. What equipment do I need to do this. Both of the computers and the Xbox are in the same room.

Here you go, the short answer. Just a simple re-wire and reconfigure (see attachment).




For the hub I recommend one of these (I have one and it's pretty much plug in play):
