1. Your wrong Comcast doesn't route the traffic to a Xbox on a different DOCSIS channel as XBOX supports 802.3 and some 802.11n/g. You a completely ignorant to Layer 2 DOCSIS MAC DOMAIN and it shows. Start around page 32 to educate yourself »www.cablelabs.com/specifications···0210.pdf
2. Who owns the network means everything that is what the debate is about. Companies spend Millions upon Millions in building up their own networks and they are not about to let anyone push traffic across it for free that is what peering costs are all about.
3. Xbox doesn't have a DOCSIS modem built into and it doesnt' support VLAN tagging. So it only has one MAC domain to the router or Cable modem and the DOCSIS modem isn't parsing Private or Internet traffic, it's all on the same Layer 2 DOCSIS MAC layer.
You are still cracking me up trying to convince everyone your understand something you clearly have never worked around and are clearly a DSL user to boot.
