What kind of ethernet cable should I be buying to connect my Xbox 360 to the internet? I finally figured out how I plan to connect my Xbox to the internet, but I need a really long ethernet cable to do so. I have heard that their are several types of ethernet cables, so I was wondering what type should be used for online gaming? Will the ones at typical departmant stores suffice?

It's not complicated it's actually really simple. A category 5 cable is simply 8 small color-coated copper wires that lock in with a connector. Based on the fact that you just need to know what to connect to where I'll provide you with a simple visual map.
(the picture shows an original Xbox not a 360 but the concept is the same and there really isn't any way to mess it up think putting pegs into slotted holes just make sure you get the right cable)
There's nothing special about the cable you need, the department store ones should suffice although that might not be the cheapest option. Shop around for the best deal, specially if you need a long one. The theoretical maximum length of a UTP Ethernet cable is 100 metres and you can buy them in ready-made long lengths. And as Nevins says, just plug it in.
Just to clarify that image was only meant to show it should be really easy to do and nearly impossible to mess up. I have no intent to suggest anything else as you asked a valid question in a respectable manner.
