NTL Broadband and Xbox Live?

Hi all, I know that this isn't strictly a PC question but has anyone on 600k NTL Broadband (£24.99 per month) been able to use Xbox Live without having to pay the extra £5.00 (Bloody Rip-Off!!!!!!!) Apparently, NTL say the extra fiver is for allocating a different IP for Xbox Live - I think this is wrong and just wanted to know if you could get around this.
Thanks in advance

Don't worry about using the NTL service my son connects his Xbox via my router. I plugged it in to the router, put the live disc in switched on and then registered, the longest part was using the controller to enter details.

ps click here this is the one I use.

With a router you do not need to have the pc switched on to use the Xbox.

Have a look at the Xbox Live site for more info on using Routers.
