First thing to say is thank you as your config 3 helped boost my ftp speeds from 1Mbps to an average of 6.5Mbps. That's some increase !
Secondly, whilst going through all the pain of slow ftp transfers and now fast transfers I can report that of the three ftp clients I used (cuteftp, smartftp and flashfxp) flashfxp is by far the best. The reason is simple. If you are tranferring folders of files flashfxp maintains a transfer rate of over 6 Mbps wheras the other two clients may have reached over 6Mbps at one time or other but dropped that rate considerably when moving from one file or folder to the next.

There is actually another Xbox I've connected to using this computer, the only difference is that that Xbox was wired to the network while this laptop was still on wireless. However, all the settings, the program I used, etc., are the same and I'm able to connect to that Xbox just fine. Can anyone hlep me out?

I have 2 PC's in the house with their own IP addy's that my ISP has given me.
Both PC's are connected to a hub using cat5/cat6 cable, The hub connected to the cable modem and the cable modem to the internet.
When I needed a connection for the XBOX my ISP gave me another IP addy just for the xbox itself and it starts something like this (66.x.x.x) So I connected another cat5 cable to the Hub and the xbox.
But my problem is i get really slow File transfers to and from my pc/xbox about 30-40ish KB/s. What I want to do is Directly connect to my xbox instead of me connecting to the internet then the xbox.
I used this guide and even read the updated one. I installed another NIC card into my PC and used a crossover cable for the xbox and the 2nd NIC. I followed the instructions correctly on how to configure my dashboard that im currently using(avalaunch) and the 2nd NIC.
After following the guide and checking if my direct connection to my xbox worked I found that I get an error message on my PC stating "Windows - System Error There is an IP address conflict with another system on the network".
So I tried changing the ip addy (from 192.168.0.3) (to 192.168.0.4) and I still receive the same error message. Tried changing it a few times after and still receive the error.
So this is where Im stuck and need help. Ive been trying to directly connect to my xbox for a while now and no cigar so i continue using the IP addy given to me from my ISP.

Having said that, I am TRYING to network my XB to my PC via a direct connection with a crossover cable. I've looked at various guides and tutorials by the bucketload but none are working. From what I gather, the problem seems to be that neither the PC or the XB recognise that they are connected to anything. Nothing lights up on either ethernet port. The cable isn't bad either, because it works on other stuff.
Any help that could be offered before I take it all outside and beat it with a sharp axe, would be just nifty.

SaYcHeEse- I'm sure you just have a setting off or something. Post an ipconfig /all from the pc that has the crossover connection to the xbox. Also post the network section of your evox.ini. Like the above, I would do this in a new post in the newbie forum so your issue can be addressed faster.
