Do I need a router?

<p>How many ethernet ports are there in a standard room? I'm planning on bringing my laptop and my xbox 360. My roommate will prolly have a computer too...so would a wired router be necessary?</p>

<p>My room only had one. If you have an insufficient number for the number of room occupants, you can borrow a hub from the community center.</p>

<p>We had two. You can 'barrow' one for the year. Although, will there really be times where you will be on all three? Usually we just swapped our cords out when we wanted. Also, some dorms have wireless internet.</p>
