I'm tyring to network my xbox through FlashFXP but everytime it always says "Connection failed (Connection timed out)" Here are my xbox settings.

Network
Enable: Yes
Type: Static
IP address: 192.168.0.14
Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0
Gateway: 192.168.01
DNS 1: 0.0.0.0
DNS 2: 0.0.0.0
SNTP
Enable: No
SNTP Server: 192.168.1.1
FTP Server
Enable: Yes
User: xbox
Password: xbox
Port: 21
Max. No. of User: 2

I followed the tutorial and can't get it to hook up through a crossover cable and also don't know how to find out the ip for my computer.

Could it be that my xbox is just screwed? because i was able to network a friends modded xbox. I don't know if it matters but the IP on his xbox was 10.0.0.3.

I appreciate any help you guys can give me because i am lost.

Try setting the default gateway to blank. And go to a dos prompt and type: ipconfig /all and post the results here. You're PC's network setup is in Network Connections in the control panel. The ethernet card you are trying to use will have a tcp/ip protocol associated with it. That is where you make changes if you need them.. For now just Go to Start -> Run -> Type CMD in the Run Line and press Enter. Then in the black window type ipconfig /all

I'm assuming you don't have a router so you will need a crosover cable to connect..
Go into your network cards tcp/ip properties and give it the Static IP address 192.168.0.1
Leave the default gateway blank.
Change the xbox's default gateway to blank as well. (You need to save Settings and reboot Evox)

Actually I am using a router. But anyway changing the IP on my computer causes the internet to shut down BUT I am able to connect to my xbox!!! It won't be that big of deal to change the IP when i want to make a transfer to my box so that fixed the problem.

Thanks a lot!

Exactly.. Al the info you need to switch it back is in your earlier posts if you need it.. If you have a router, then you should be able to connect using a patch cable (Opposite of a crossover cable, same kind that goes to your PC from your router) with the same PC settings you use to access the internet. The only thing on the xbox that should need to changed is switch Use Static IP to No.
