ok, so ive got my xbox running a full version of evox using a savegame, nothing on the HD yet, because i havent been able to get my XBox and PC to talk to each other. i think ive got all the network settings right, the only thing i can think of is that im not using a proper ethernet cable, but ive tried like 3 different ones. one cable, i plugged into my cable modem then into my xbox, and it DOES FIND that connection, evox says its got a 100 mbs connection, but then i plug the end from the cable modem into my PC, and nothing. so i KNOW that data does go through that cable to the xbox...any hints?

Are you using a crossover cable? You need one to go straight from your PC to your Xbox.

if you use a router or hub you can use a regular cat5 cable. if your doing pc -> xbox directly, then u need a xover.

oh and if your connecting via a router set it to dhcp. a lot easier than statically conneting.
