dude i had similar problems
cheek that you have a cross over cable if not get one, dont bother with routers and crap it just complicates issues.
double and tripple cheek that you have the settings correct in the tatorial, i used the same one and it worked.
now please tell me what operating system you are running your pc on.
i forgot to enable some networking options thats where i went wrong on my xp system, also on my 98 system i can go through this with you if you want me to, but first
go to the start button bottom left on your screen hit the run option, and type in command.com, it should boot a little black screen, somtimes you need to hit entre for the writing to come up
now type ping 192.168.0.3 assuming this is your xbox's ip address.
regardless of any settings it should tell you after
ping statistics for (your xbox's ip address you just typed in)
packets sent = 4, recieved = 4, lost = 0 <0% lost>
round trips all should = 0ms, max 0ms, avg, 0ms
dont worry if those settings mean nothing they will make sense when you do this i have simplified what you are looking for,
it is important that 0% of your packtes are lost,
tips ensure that your xbox is on and sitting on the start up postion in your moded dashboard
all fire walls are off and virus cheekers are off
when you enter settings in your dashboard all ways chose save and exit then reboot your xbox. when you change these settings ensure your ethernet cable is connected to your computer regardless if you are getting a connection or not, i found if i did not have the ether net cable connected to my computer and xbox it would not change the settings.
from here i realy do need to know what your pc operation system is, and what message you get when you ping the xbox
i wrote this real quick if something does not make sense please let me know
dont worry about other dashboards just yet there are other options
