Can't Connect My Xbox To The Computer
Posted 16 October 2003 - 10:02 PM
I left all the settings as they were by default. My nic's IP is 192.168.0.1, and in evoX it says the xbox is 192.168.0.3 and the gateway 192.168.0.1. When I connect the crossover cable, the xbox says it's 100/FULL DUPLEX, but the IP remains 0.0.0.0.
I'm running windows XP, with no firewall and my nic is a 3Com 3C905TX.
I really don't understand what's wrong...
Is my xbox defect ?

Should the xbox and/or the PC be rebooted after changing the settings ?

I tired connecting to the xbox with win98 on my other hdd, but still nothing.

The xbox actually does see when I change my NIC from 100/FULL DUPLEX to 10/HALF DUPLEX for example, so there IS somekind of connection between the two...
Please don't tell me my xbox is defect !

WHEN is the IP supposed to show up anyway (I mean on the top spot of the SETTINGS menu in evoX) ?
When you plug the cable, it changes from "NO LINK" to the static IP you've entered (188.8.131.52 in my case) ?
Or do you need to reboot the xbox for it to show up ?
Because when I plug the cable, all it says for the IP is 0.0.0.0.

I noticed that when I boot up the xbox with evoX, the setting for USE STATIC IP automatically switches to NO. So if I change it, I basically have to reboot as you said, but as it switches back to NO, it expects a dynamic IP from a DHCP server...
So I guess I should burn another evoX and change the .ini file so it says USE STATIC IP : YES.
Hope it'll work...

I just noticed that "SAVE AND EXIT" option at the bottom of the menu and hmmmm... Now it works.
I managed to connect to the xbox with an ftp and the ping test was ok.
Thanks for your help !
