But read on.
Cable Internet Users
If you use Cable Broadband, i.e. you get an ethernet cable modem provided (NTL/Telewest/Virgin) - a service that does not use your ADSL phone line. You can order broadband and connect your Xbox direct to the modem
ADSL Internet Users
If you use ADSL (an internet connection via your phone line) you will probably need a PC/Laptop to configure your ADSL Modem/router initially with your ISP's username/password. (Some ISP's like Sky and BT come pre-configured)
After that is done you no longer require the use of a PC/Laptop (unless for fine tuning NAT if you have issues).
Also some stores will configure the router for you if you supply them with your ISP details, you don't need to be at your own house to configure the router, only to test it afterwards.
