    here's one layout
    modem--router#1 --- router#2
    Use wired connections for all the above and place your wireless router at #2, but
    turn DHCP OFF, encryption ON. The cable from #1 comes from a LAN port and
    goes to router #2 also on a LAN port (ie leave the #2 WAN port empty).

    Your xbox attaches to #1 as a wired connection.
