Dear lucas,

I do not know of any particular part that is suitable for a reliable field installed category 6 plug. My best advice for you is to terminate the cable on category 6 jacks and then use a short (7') category 6 patch cord from the jacks to the equipment. I have no information on the X-box (sorry I am not a gamer) but I suspect that the equipment does have a standard 8 conductor modular jack on it.
