    I normally FTP without any problems but this time I FTPed using my motherboard's (ASUS P5GDC Deluxe) built-in ethernet card using FlashFXP and it doesn't work! Someone please help!

    I did the following:

    # 1) Use a crossover cable and connect your xbox to your computer's ethernet card port and open your xbox
    # 2) Go to Control Panel
    # 3) Disable the firewall (if any)
    # 4) Click on "Network Connections"
    # 5) Right click on the LAN Connection and choose properties
    # 6) A window will open, on the "General" Tab, make sure that "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)" is checked
    # 7) Highlight "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)" and click on properties
    # 8) Select "Use the following IP Adress"
    # 9) On "IP Adress:" type in
    # 10) On "Subnet Mask:" it should automatically be
    # 11) On "Default Gateway:" it should only have three dots.
    # 12) Click "Ok" on the "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) Properties" window
    # 13) Click "Ok" on the "Local Area Connection Properties" window
    # 14) Make sure every window is closed
    # 15) Open the program called "FlashFXP" (other programs such as SmartFTP, or even Internet Explorer can be used to do this but those methods are unknown to me)
    # 16) Click the thunder icon and select quick connect (or press F8)
    # 17) Do not mess around with tabs other than the "General" Tab
    # 18) On "Server or Url:" type in
    # 19) On "User Name:" type in xbox
    # 20) On "Password" type in xbox
    # 21) Click "Ok" on the "Quick Connect" window
    ...and still, nothing works!!!! The PC says it is connected to the xbox and the xbox says that it is connected to the PC! What's going wrong?! By the way, I AM using a crossover cable and not an ethernet one!

    Create a home network on your pc...
    start-control panel-network internet connections-create home network
    just follow the wizard and reboot that should fix the problem...

    Let me know if that works. If that doesn't can you transfer a file to it? just drag and drop and if it says completed then you are connected it's just being weird.(I'm sure there's a fix but don't want to type that if his answer works).

    usually creating the home network will work if not then turning on ICS after creating the network will fix it...

    I don't know if this is what theridges said but...I clicked on control panel->network connections->create a new connection->Next->Set up a home or small office network->Finish->Next->Next->Other->Next->This computer belongs to a network that does not have an internet connection->Next->Typed in some stuff there and then->Next->Next->Selected turn on file and printer sharing->Next->Next->Just finish the wizard; I don't need to run the wizard on other computers.

    Is that what you (theridges) suggested I do?!

    And by the way...what is ICS?

    Well...unfortunately that doesn't seem to work! When I was using my PCI Ethernet card...it worked flawlessly! Now that I am using my motherboard's built-in Ethernet port, it doesn't work!!!

    Do you people have more advice to offer me?

    I also have Linux, so...if someone uses Linux, I am open to FTPing using that OS too!

    try an Xbox IP of something closer to the PC. Like or and see if that works.

    "If I insult you...don't get offended...my insults are "friendly insults"...I know this sounds stupid (ridiculous) but I am fet up of writing, "no offense" in my posts... "

    and by the way, that will not help you get answers if you start insulting people or getting to be a smart a$$ like "I'd appreciate it if someone could help me!"

    people are trying to help you, this is not their job, it is not like they get paid to sit here and help you out.
