No idea, but when I download from my XBox I get 11500 Kb/s When I upload however I only get 600. I've wondered the same thing.

I've noticed that using the new EvoX, I got these extreme differences. Before with the old one I was getting 2500 or so each way. I use a crossover ethernet cable to connect, so maybe switching to the static IP is what did it for me with the new EvoX.

Use Flash FXP and be sure to set the Xbox as a static IP , if you are using a router then try to keep the Xbox IP the next available IP [ example : pc#1 is 192.168.1.100 , pc#2 is 192.168.1.101 , make the Xbox 192.168.1.102 ] . Doing these things should help you increase your transfer rates .

I really don't think having sequential IP addresses is going affect the transfer rate.................

Yes , you are both correct here that nothing I suggested is fact , it is just what seems to work best for me and most of the people that I know . You can use it or not , the choice is yours obviously .
-- Setting the Xbox to a static IP is proven to work better in most cases however .
-- Why is everyone here always so anxious to point out the negative instead of trying to be helpful . Just the nature of the Internet I guess .

You haven't given any information about your network setup. I'll be guessing completely.
37 kb\sec sounds like a typical DSL speed. Are you sure your traffic isn't going outside and back in again, Rather than over you LAN?
I don't even know if you HAVE DSL.
Try :
- try 'tracert 192.168.0.160' (or whatever your xbox IP is) from a PC. If you get anything other than 1 hop, you've got a config problem.

And no, static vs dynamic IP or sequential IPs won't make any difference. You'll gain a little time at startup if you use a static IP. The time it takes the DHCP server to communicate with the xbox. Maybe a few milliseconds.

Well under normal conditions I would agree with you but it does seem to help with the Xbox transfers [ could be an issue with the Evo-X code - who knows ] .
Good point about the hops though , finally somebody trying to help .

Interesting. I guess I 'can' imagine a piece of code that would do that:

if(static_ip)
do one thing
else if (dynamic_ip)
do another

Can't imagine why anybody would do that though. I know i wouldn't bother writing a TCP stack. I'd either use the libs already there or go to sourceforge. Then I'm lazy and hate writing code when I don't have to.

I'd love to run some tests and see if there is a difference between the two. But I know I can't be bothered. So I'll just take your word for it.

Cheers
