BlueYonder adds support for XBox and PlayStation2

Telewest has announced support for the XBox and Playstation2 gaming consoles on their broadband cable modem service, see here for more details.

The new support appears to be the ability to have two IP addresses issued by registering the MAC address (a unique identifier for all network devices) of the XBox or PS2 with BlueYonder in addition to the primary PC. To overcome the problem of a single connector on the cable modem, Blue Yonder offer a gaming pack which includes a 'dual connector'. This 'dual connector' appears to be a standard network hub/switch.
