Network Switch And Wireless
Posted 01 April 2010 - 08:58 PM
my wireless router and modem are downstairs.
i connect my pc to my linksys router wirelessly. (nic 1)
I have an on-board NIC card on my motherboard in my PC (nic 2). (as well as the wireless nic card i use to connect to my router (nic 1))
i have a linksys 5 port switch lying around.
MY QUESTIONS are:
1. how can i set up my switch so i can ftp into my xbox from my pc? do i need to disable my wireless card? do i put the computer in the unlink spot? or both devices in the 1-5 slots? do i use static or auto ip? if static, what do i set all the DNS, IP, Default Gateway etc... to on both devices?
2. can i get internet to my xbox like such:
Modem>Wireless Router>PC (wireless nic 1)>PC (wired nic 2)>switch>xbox?
thank you for your time hope this makes sense ask any questions.

you say plug my xbox in but i dont have a crossover cable. can i still use the switch with this option?
also there are 3 options in network devises.:
Local Area Connection | Wireless Network Connection | and 1394 Connection.
which ones do i bridge? if i enable the local area connection it says limited or no connectivity. but the 1394 seems to enable fine.
i bridged the 1394 and the wireless. the xbox found an automatic dchp ip address. i tired to ftp to it with no luck
EDIT: never mind i got it! Bridged the local area connection with the wireless even though there was limited or no connectivity and even though the bridge said the cable was unplugged it works! thanks never played around withe bridging before.
