I have a TrendNet wireless router connected to my DSL modem. One PC ( let's call it PC-A ) has a wired NIC which is connected to the router with an ethernet cable. A second PC ( call it PC-B ) has a wireless NIC that is connected to the router (wirelessly of course). PC-B also contains a wired NIC that is connected to my xbox via a crossover cable. Now, I would like to be able to FTP to the xbox from both PC-A and PC-B if possible. Right now, I can only FTP from PC-B. I would also like to use the xbox ( via XBMC ) to access shared folders from both PCs ( for music, pix, vids, etc. ) I don't really care if I can get to the internet from the xbox, but that would be an added bonus if possible. These are my IP addresses:
Router WAN: 192.168.1.100
Router LAN: 192.168.0.100
PC-A wired NIC: 192.168.0.101 (assigned by router via DHCP)
PC-B wireless NIC: 192.168.0.105 (assigned by router via DHCP)
PC-B wired NIC (to xbox): 192.168.2.100
Subnet mask for all is 255.255.255.0
PC-A is running Vista Home Premium
PC-B is running XP Pro
As you can see, I have PC-B's wired NIC and the xbox on a different subnet from the wireless network. Using this setup, I have no problem using FTP to my xbox from PC-B. I have no problems sharing files between PC-A and PC-B. I have no problems connecting the internet on PC-A and PC-B. However, I cannot figure out how to FTP to the xbox or share folders from PC-A. I tried using the software bridge in XP Pro on PC-B to bridge the wired and wireless connections, but it doesn't work and I also lose my internet connection on PC-B when I do it. No matter what I do, I cannot get PC-A and the xbox to "talk" at all. I thought this would be simple but I am obviously in over my head and need some help. I know I can run a wired connection from my xbox to my router and I know I can get a wireless adapter for the xbox and all that stuff, but I really want to make this work. After all, I already have all the necessary cables in place and it won't cost me a dime extra if I can get it working. HELP PLEASE!!!!
