2 networking questions
1. I have my PC(XP) and a laptop, I need to transfer 10gigs to the laptop which is running vista. Can I hook them together with an Ethernet cable and somehow transfer this file?

2. My school uses PEAP authentication to connect to the wired internet, is there a way to use a router with this, and somehow connect my Xbox 360 to the internet through that?

1) Yes, connect them with a networking cable. Don't worry when you don't get a valid won't (because there isn't anything assigning ips between the two systems. Then, you'll just search for the other computer via its ip address (it still gets one, its called a loopback address and will begin with 169).

Once you've found the other computer, you just place the files in a shared folder (or share the folder they are located in) and transfer The other alternative is a crossover USB cable, but they're $30+ and networking cables are free.

2) No idea.
