So I'm starting school in about two weeks and the dorm I'm staying in has no wifi and has one ethernet port in the room. I would like to have my laptop, and my xbox (with live) working. I was doing some research on some type of splitter that would take that one port and turn it into 2, but I found that sometimes you can't use both devices simultaneously. Is this true?

Any help or suggestions for my problem is appreciated. Thanks
