I'm trying to set up Xbox Live on my 360 using my old NETGEAR WGE111 but I'm having no joy. I'm on BT Total Broadband and all is working well, but when I connect the NETGEAR to either the Xbox, the PC, or the BT Hub I get a blinking internet light and the configuration tool that came with it is not recognising it.
I don't have a clue what to look for, and I don't want to mess up my existing hub settings. I'm getting a tad frustrated. Can anyone help?

Yes! I did it. If anyone else has problems using the same gear then I'm happy to answer PM's.

Is the netgear a router? if so check that if DHCP is enabled on both devices that your not getting overlapping IP address ranges, i.e the same address ranges on two different interfaces
I take it you want to have
ADSL -> BT Hub -> Router -> PC & Xbox
What you will probably have to do is to connect the PC straight to the netgear so you can access via the admin ip address, change the DHCP range (this will probably change the admin IP too)
Then plug in the internet/wan interface to the modem and the others into the ethernet ports
