I currently use my xbox as my wmc extender, and I use the ethernet port for the connection to my home network to stream movies from my pc in another room. If i get the xbox uverse kit, which of course requires the ethernet port connection on the game console, will I still be able to access my home network from the port? Maybe this is a dumb question, but given that my cable is delivered via coax and I will need the adapter, I wasn't sure if it would be on the same windows home network.
Thanks in advance.

If your network connection is available you would use that to feed the TV as well. The purpose of the adapter is for people who have coax only.
Another illustration is if you have an STB connected coax you can plug in a PC or any other network device to access the internet. Are you talking about trying a similar connection with the x-box?
I have seen posts where folks who have complex home networks have to be careful to be sure all devices can see each other.
Also, seen posts that the x-box kit is not currently available.

Yes we use a cat5 connection for the xbox. (We have cat5 "jumped" around the house, all feeding into the RG). So no need for the coax adapter - thanks for the reply.

It would be easier if your U-Verse service is delivered over Ethernet, because both U-verse service and your home network can co-exist on the same wire. But as was said before, the Xbox option has not been available to new customers for about 6 months, so this isn't something you can consider doing at this time...
