Ok, I spent 2 days reading all the info that I could possibly find, yet nothing talked about exactly what I was having a problem with. I have a chip installed in my xbox, EvoX setup, and I connect my xbox to my network, through a router. I use automatic IP finder on the xbox, and it connects online fine, if I edit the ips at all, then I run into problems, nothing will connect, but I run it through auto-detect and remember the ip that it recieves. The only problem is, my two computers are showing up on the network, but the xbox is not. I tried pinging its ip that it has chosen, nothing. I can not connect through FlashFXP to the xbox, and I even used LANguard to show me everything that is connected on the network, and it only shows my two computers, and the xbox does not show up. I tried for 4 hours tinkering with the settings on the xbox, and nothing. When you talk about setting the static IP on the xbox, do you mean just go into settings and setting the IP address itself to 192.168.0.3, or the gateway to that, but I tried both, and switching, and everything, and I can not get a ping or anything out of the xbox. I even tried using criss-crossed wires right to my PC, and my PC would not detect the xbox. Thanks for your help.
