I am trying to connect my PC to my Executer 2 modded Xbox using Filezilla. I have a wireless router d-link di-624. I have a regular patch 5 cable running from this router to the xbox. I look at my xbox and the IP address is 192.168.1.200 I enter that on the filezilla "quick connect" along with "xbox" as the user and password. I always get an unable to connect. Is this the right IP I need to be using or does my router assign one to the xbox that is different and how do I know? Please anyone that can help, let me know. BTW, I am using xbmp 2.3 I want to connect my PC to the xbox to upgrade to 2.4 and/or using the xbox as a media player to stream music and vids and pics from my pc to the xbox.....any help would be great, thanks!

how do I get the IP from the router? When I got into the web based setting for the router, is it the LAN IP Address 192.168.0.1
Is there only 1 LAN ip for the router. I also have my PC connected to the router. And I should turn off the static IP on the xbox?

you cant just get the ip and plug it in. you have to configure your nic card to work with that ip address too.

My little troubleshooting for ftp crossover or router

1.pc and xbox ON? (and router or others),set default gateway to 0.0.0.0
2.correct cable? crossover if you ftp direct from pc to xbox or straight through with router.
3.nic lights is on? (green and/or orange)
4.(using crossovercable) IP on pc set to 192.168.0.(4)*. Xbox IP set to 192.168.0.(3)** . Edit necessary info in ftp soft as
SITE NAME=XBOX, IP ADDRESS=192.168.0.3(this ip is the address you want to connect, in this case your Xbox),USER NAME=XBOX,PASSWORD=XBOX(usually set to XBOX if not been changed),
PORT=21, under options=all unchecked,
*= this is optional,i use 4 in my ip.
**=usually is this set to 3, universial you may say.
static ip set to yes.
setup network set to yes.
5.using router. reboot every single piece of hardware such as pc,router,modem and xbox AFTER you have plugged the right cables in.
now, you router should send out a ip address to your xbox( make sure dhcp is ENABLE and that "use static ip" on your xbox is set to NO(you have to reboot xbox if you change things in .ini file))
PC settings should be reciving IP and DNS address automatically, (if you have messed with nic configurations, try set to default)
If you`ve done it right, click on settings(xbox) and it should look somethings like this: type=DHCP,IP=(usually somewhere around 192.168.1.197)This is the IP address you recive from router.
LINE STATUS=100/FULL DUPLEX or something.
6.back to ftp. The IP on xbox, edit that into ftp address you try connecting and hit CONNECT BUTTONor whatever you do to make ftp prog. run.
7.Turn firewall off and check if anti virus prog. is stopping it by disable antivirus.
8. when ever you have MADE ANY changes in evox.ini or other, REBOOT Xbox.
9. if this doesn`t work? I don`t know, it worked for me.
GOOD LUCK

ps! TO run ping command type PING followed by the IP ADDRESS to want to ping and -T in command prompt.

OR look in my sig, how to ftp for total newbs.

what steps do I have to take to upgrade my xbmp from 2.3 to 2.4...is 2.4 better. I want to do this because I hear 2.4 plays AAC files and I have many of them.

make sure you have a "good" working version of xbmp2.4, that you have a default.xbe and all the other stuff.
as long as you don`t use xbmp for a dash somehow, just erase that old xbmp folder.
ftp the new one to the same place, it shouldn`t be any harder than that
