Might work.  They should supply a wireless router (or at least they did 
for me) which you will plug the cable modem into, then you you'll have 
about 4 ports free, one can be used by your PC and the other can be used 
by the XBOX/media device.  You can leave it connected, there is no need 
to mess around plugging it in and unplugging it.
