    Hi, I've been trying to get this to work for the past 8 hours. I'm using evox and flashfxp. I, to my knowledge and reading the other faqs have set up my IP addresses and gateways correctly. however whenever i try connecting the connection always times out. it used to say unable to connect, no route to host, not sure what i did, but it doesn't say that anymore?? any help would be much appreciated. ciao

    try starting over again following these steps:

    step 1
    On xbox goto system utils > settings > network

    step 2
    change settings to
    setup network : yes
    use static IP : yes
    ip : 192.168.0.3
    subnetmask : 255.255.255.0
    default gateway : 192.168.0.1
    DNS 0.0.0.0
    DNS 0.0.0.0

    STEP 3
    on your PC
    WIN 95/98/me
    right click *my network places* select *properties* then double click *internet protocol (TCP/IP)* then select *use following ip address*
    WIN XP
    right click *my network places* select *properties* then right click *local area connection* select *properties* then double click *internet protocol (TCP/IP)* then select *use following ip address*

    step 4
    now insert following
    IP address : 192.168.0.1
    Subnetmask : 255.255.255.0
    default gateway : 192.168.0.1

    when you have done this confirm all windows and restart your pc if necessary

    step 5
    connect your network cable (crossover if direct pc > xbox)

    step 6
    start flash fxp
    make a new connection
    insert following
    IP 192.168.0.3
    USERNAME : xbox
    PASSWORD : xbox (if still default)
    click connect


    ** crossover cable should look the same at both ends except the greens and oranges should be reversed.

    cheers

    If you have a firewall on then turn it off as it wont connect if it is on.
