2 Nics, On Chipmoded Xbox, One Frustrated Dewd.
Posted 24 August 2008 - 08:27 PM
Okay, this is what I got going on.... I used to have this working a while back, so I know it works, but have since formatted my PC, and put in a buncha mega-drives...
I have cable internet, connected to a Switch, and then to my PC. This is not an option. This is how my internet is setup, and this is how I want it, so I dont need 'Get a router' as an answer... lol
Two network cards in the pc, one to the switch, one to the xbox.
I can connect to the FTP on the XBOX via flashfxp.
I cant see the networked drive on the PC so that I can use the 4TB of space I have on the pc. I dont see the networked drive of the xbox on the pc. And I cant connect to the internet with the xbox.
Can ANYONE give me a glimmer of insight as to what I am missing?
I am not adverse to putting a router on the second nic, to act as a liason between the two, but I didn't need it before, so I dont think I need it now.
Xenium 24k gold chip, newest xbmc, old dashboard... nothing on the drives of the xbox...
gonna loooose it.

The old xbox can't automatically pick up what type of cable you have like the 360 can.
This is how I have mys son's xbox hooked up in his room. I have the cable into eth0 of ubuntu desktop pc, running brctl, eth1 with crossover to xbox1(now 360, so doesn't matter anymore.)
Good luck, hope it helps.

Thanx for the help, all the same.
PS: This is a Windows XP machine. Forgot to mention that.

Sorry for any of that useless information, but just sounds like a small networking problem.
What are you even using the switch for? Is the cable modem providing dhcp with multiple addresses?
The xbox is connected to the pc, correct? It just sounds like your bridge is not set up correctly. If you reformatted, you may not have set it up again the same....
Without more info, its hard for me to say.

The bridge might be the problem... I can connect to the internet with the PC, and I can connect to the xbox with the pc, but the XBOX doesn't see the internet... and doesn't appear on the network...

Do you have a bridge set up? if not, just highlight both connections and right click. I believe you can set one up in windows much easier than linux...

You need to setup internet connection sharing on the pc. Do you have static address's set for the xbox and the pc?
Static on the XBOX, yes... Dynamic on the PC... but it never changes.

Did your xbox get a dhcp address?
Yea, it got the address fine. FTP connected to the dynamic one and everything. I got a feeling it is something in the sharing on the PC.. I just cant put my finger on what.
