Ip Address Disappears!?
Posted 14 February 2006 - 08:45 PM
anyway...when I try to play a game online.. ( I use xbconnect.. not a live member..)
the IP address that is dhcp'd ( or even statically assigned ).. disappears.... I can do a continuous ping to the ip and I have no problems when I'm at the avalaunch menu..... but when I start a game... the ping stops and the ip become unresponsive.. any ideas?

I saw another post on one of the other team sites stating the same problem.....
i'm not even trying to connect to a game.... when I to a continuous ping... the minute the dash stops and the game starts... the Ping stops.... very strange...

in reading some stuff... it sounds like I need some kind of system link emulator that runs under the game.... I was thinking that the chip would maintain the IP stack and talk to xbconnect.....
am I out to lunch on this whole thing??

long story short.. I managed to corrupt my xenium flash.. and thought I trashed it. so I ordered an xecuter.. but when I was waiting for it to arrive.. I used the recovery mode to reflash the xenium with a new os...I couldn't get the xecuter to work ( I didn't spend alot of time on it to be honest....)..so I put the xenium back in...
is the os on the chip responsible for maintaining the ip stack when a game is running? maybe I need to flash to a newer os.. or is it a bios function?

since my hard drive ( 200gb ) recently developed the "click of death".. I replaced it with a 40gb that I had laying around... so I may retry the xecuter3 chip....
the only reason I put the xenium back in was because I didn't want to risk losing all of the games and movies that I had on the drive ( the one that is dying ).... but since I put in a new drive.. I don't have alot of risk there yet....
when I have time I'll try some of the suggestions....
I'm a cisco network engineer in my professional life so IP stuff is very familiar to me...
I also saw that if you use kai/xlink.. you need to use xbmc to manage all of the system link games... I just wonder if the ip stack while a game is going is something that mod chips don't do..... I've never tried to play online before ( I didn't know that things like xbconnect and kai existed )....

also, you dont need xbmc to run kai itself. you dont need anything on the xbox to run it. but you do need it on the computer or linksys wrt54g router. they handle all the work your concerned with.

I have a xenium blue.. and I believe that it's running 2.3.1 ....... but let's not focus on what chip I have or what version it is... it's a xenium blue with an xecuter2 bios.. a 256k version...one of the latest 256k version..
so let's move on.... when the xbox is running ...I have a static IP on it... and I can ping the address.... when I run any app.. the ping stays.. ( i ping from my laptop... ping <ip> -t )
the -t makes the ping continuous... so I can tell instantly if the IP stack stops responding....
the second I start a game.. the IP stack on the xbox stops responding.. ( request timed out on the ping..)
but I also tried to run xbconnect on my laptop.. and I could see all the games.. chat with people.. all the normal stuff........... but when I run a game.. and choose system link... I can't see any games or when I host a game... the laptop can't see it...
i would be interested to see if anyone out there can ping their xbox while a game is running....

Awesome. I'm working on getting my certification right now. I'm done with semesters 1+2, only one year to go!
Anyways, What is your network setup? I have always had a bunch of problems when running xbconnect. Have you had any luck when using kai? And when you're testing it online, are you using an original disc and booting from the MS bios/dash, or are you playing the games on the hard drive?

I have an X-Chip and Evolution X as the dashboard.
I can ping an FTP all day long as long as I am in the dashboard OR XBMC.
As soon as I pop in a game, BAM. Request timed out.
I do a continuous ping as well to see right away if any thing changes.
Can anybody else ping their XBOX while running a game??
