i recently reformatted my pc ever since then i havent been able to connect to my xbox. i thought it was my box but i just modded my brothers box for him and still cannot connect. i tried using flashfxp, telnet, IE, firefox, and i tried to map my network drive. im using evoX on both boxes, setting defaults. im using a CAT 5E crossovercable.

EDIT:network connection timeout error

Well first of all, you need to tell us which of those LAN connections is the one you're connecting to your Xbox (I'm going to assume it's the first one, not "2" or "3", based on the info there). And you're using a crossover cable, implying that you're connecting directly to the Xbox and you don't have a router, right?

Second, what is the IP address of your Xbox? That's kind of important here.

Check the simple stuff first ie physical connections and crossover cable. Then try disabling all network connections and create a new one from scratch, making sure to select the proper network adapter on the pewter. Finally make sure that the password and user name are correct, xbox and xbox by default.

How are you connecting your xbox? Is it Xbox > Router, Xbox > Modem? And what's the PC setup? PC > Modem, PC > Router? You need to make sure both PC and Xbox are connecting through the router if you're using a modem also. When you say "Connection Timed Out" it dosen't sound like you're connecting to a live IP. If you want to be sure your xbox is that IP, then ping it. Disable any hardware/software firewalls. This includes firewalls in your modem/router and firewalls that were downloaded from the internet. You can't really disable the firewall in your modem(unless you ask your ISP to do so) but you can port forward.

You might want to check up on basic networking before giving advice. First, he said he's using a crossover cable, so that implies it's a direct PC to Xbox connection, no router involved (at least I hope so, because I already mentioned this in my previous post and he didn't correct me). Second, and most important, if he did have a router or modem, disabling the firewall in that wouldn't do a damn thing except expose his network to attacks from the internet. The firewall on routers only applies to the WAN port, it's not between the LAN ports. Same with the port forwarding; that's only for incoming ports from the Internet, they have no effect whatsoever on LAN connections. Third, it is highly unlikely that a software firewall on his computer is blocking outgoing FTP connections.

Now, since you tried two different Xboxes, the problem is probably with your PC or your physical connection. First, check the cable: do you have connection lights on your network card when you have the cable plugged in? Does Windows show the cable physically connected in the Network Connections part of the control panel? If so, confirm the IP on your Xbox by checking it in the EvoX settings. Make sure you're actually trying the right IP, don't just assume it's 0.3. Once you've checked those two things, try pinging the Xbox's IP from the command console on your PC. Let us know after you've checked those things.

ok so i ran all of these BEFORE i asked for your help...ive been a modder for awhile and am quite embaressed this happened to me and i tried everything i could before i asked for help but here it goes ...

connections lights are on. windows detects something is connected to it but cannot send packets, i pinged the xbox and all 4 packets failed, but it would let me ping my modem using the same NIC card. i dont assume anything and every box i have ever done the IP was 192.168.0.3

i cant figure it out i even asked some hackers (it is a networking problem) and they coudldnt figure it out, and they pointed me here. i could really use some help as i have tried everything i can think of.

That's OK, this kind of stuff sometimes happens even to the most experienced!

Hmm. The next thing I would check -- and maybe you already have, but it's easy to overlook -- is that the subnet mask on your PC is set to 255.255.255.0 and NOT 255.255.0.0. I'd also look through the advanced network settings to make sure there's no extraneous crap in there, but that's a long shot. Beyond that, I'm not sure what to try at the moment.

Not to make anyone sound stupid or anything, but have you made sure you are using port 21? It is easy to overlook that as well.

You could always try static and then ping the ip afterwards.

You said that everything was default, which DHCP is default in the evox.ini.
