    Hello and welcome to the forum.
    Your best bet would probably be to obtain an inexpensive small four or five port switch and plug that into one of the lan ports on your router and then both your PC and xBox into the switch.

    you could also try (though a wee expensive) Dlink DAP 1533 or similar if you cant locate the switch near the XBox
