System Link Cable

Generic ethernet patch cable. Two Xbox units could be linked directly in an ad-hoc network, or multiple units could be attached through network routers/switches to play across a network. Although this would become a standard method to connect, the Xbox was the first console to have inbuilt ethernet and not use a direct serial connection. Contemporaneously, the PlayStation 2 initially used a iLink/Firewire direct connection.
