Hi all, just hoping someone could help me out here.

I'm having problems networking my xbox to my pc. I have 2 networkk cards installed in my computer, one for my internet and one for the xbox.

Basically, when I use flashFXP to connect, it says this:

Connecting to XBOX
Connected to XBOX -> IP PORT=21
Connection failed (connection lost)

My xbox details are as follows:

Type: static
Line status: 10/half duplex
Use static IP: yes
default gateway: (the same as my computers IP)
ftp: yes
password: xbox

I know the IP is a bit weird, I'm not sure why it's instead of what I think most people have ( but I don't think I can change this and am not sure if this even makes a difference.

What could the problem be? Why is my xbox connecting then losing the connection about 10 seconds later?

Might it be because I'm using a standard network cable and not a cross-over cable? I'm not sure if my cable is cross over or not, I presume it is, lol.

Any help would be MUCH appreciated.

well if you're connecting directly from pc to xbox, then you need a crossover cable. Usually, the ends of the cable are clear, and you can see the wires inside. Look at both ends. If the wires are in a different order at one end (some of them are reversed, and some arent), then its crossover.

and change the xbox ip address to
do it by going into system settings (on the xbox, duh) and changing the numbers.

I would agree with Lebrizon about the crossover cable. Another way to verify that it is a crossover cable and its working. Check and see if the LINK lights are ON, both the PC and the Xbox. Then make sure you can ping

One thing that you did not mention was the IP address of the PC's NIC cards. I assume its 10.0.0.x. like and not

It maybe your FTP software, FlashFXP. Try another FTP program, WSFTP or SmartFTP.
