Hello all
I just had my six year olds xbox chipped to create and play his backups.
It appears to have all the software installed on it eg: dvd2xbox, px hdd loader, Avalaunch dashboard, and more.
I purchaced a network crossover cable.
Installed Flashfxp & isomaker.
and after reading some tutorials are set to give it a go, But one thing i carn't find info on is.
I have a ADSL connection connectet to my pc which i will be removing to plug in the crossover cable / when i create a new network connection will i bugger up my ADSL settings. I really am new at networking so don't know what to expect.
Any advice is much appreaciated as would any links to tutorials.
Thanks to all.

My advice is to install a new network card just for the xbox network-It's what I have on my pc and it's much simpler than faffing about with ip settings and cables everytime you want to ftp to your xbox.

It shouldn't harm the internet connection at all, as high speed connections usually obtain the IP address automatically (but check to see if there's any IP address entered in your Internet Protocol properties just to be sure), so as long as you just put it back to that in your Internet Protocol properties once you've done, you should be fine - I do it on my laptop all the time.

Thanks for the replys guys
just checking / but i'm sure the plug on the back of my pc where i plug in my network cable is my network card, because i could run my ADSL from my usb port
then leaving my network card free, i used to run the ASDL from my usb before.
I'll give it a go and see.
Anyway thanks again for all the advice much appreaciated.

If you do that you will need to setup ICS on your PC so the xbox can share your internet connection. If the DSL modem can support NAT and give out private IP's, Then you can "bridge" the two local area connections in windows and get one shared IP for the
DSL conn and Xbox conn. Much easier than setting up ICS.
