Hi,

I had my xbox networked months ago via a direct cross over cable and it worked fine.

I didnt use the ftp for some time and in between I had to format my pc and reinstall xp with the sp2 upgrade.

Since then I have had limited success in getting it to conect to my xbox, I get the error "limited or no conectivity".

I did a google search and read that this error is todo with sp2 and can be a problem or sometimes a false warning. I tried to resolve this with patches and in the end removed sp2 with no luck.

My ftp client simply wont contect with no route to host coming up, I have double checked all ip settings and it all looks ok.

One more thing and it might be the cause, the little clips on the cross-over plugs have snapped off. I have made sure though that they are well in place.

I did manage to conect via the cross over going into my wireless router/hub then a direct cable to the xbox... it actually seemed to conect wireless from the pc to the hub then hub to the xbox via the direct cable... however the speed was poor and it kept dropping the connection.

Im looking at getting a 120gb hdd so will want a good speed connection for large transfers.

I dont have my bband at this time so no internet which makes it hard to resolve from home so any help from you guys would be most appreciated.

Thanks
Paul

Thats definitely a SP2 problem. Since you removed it, have you re-installed
the ftp client program or tried different programs?

Thats poor signal strength, interferance, and/or encrytpion. Not the cable.

get a good crossover without the clips off. then install sp2 ( no reason not to ). and post an ipconfig /all from your machine. Also add the ftp client as a trusted app to the sp2 windows firewall.
