Can't Get Two Nics To Work...
Posted 08 July 2003 - 12:47 AM
I run my dsl off my mobo port, and the xbox off a plug in nic. I can ping and ftp to the xbox just fine if the dsl nic is disabled, but I'm dead in the water if the dsl is enabled.
I tried setting up internet connection sharing: if the dsl nic is shared (enabled or disabled), the xbox nic won't work. The dsl nic works fine no matter the xbox nic setting.
I have my xbox nic set at 192.168.1.105, the xbox at 192.168.1.2. I'm aware when using ics, the xbox nic is changed to 192.168.0.1, I tried changing the xbox settings to no avail.
I've read all the tutorials I could find, searched the boards, and now I'm running out of patience. Can someone please help me???

I wouldn't use ICS unless you need it so your xbox can get on live. If you just need your xbox to connect for ftp or transferring of files whatever then just forget about ICS.
So... if you dont want ics all you need to do is put your xbox and the nic that it is connected to on a different subnet then the other nic in your pc that is connected to dsl.
xbox: 192.168.1.2 xbox nic: 192.168.1.105
pcnic : 192.168.0.2
Of course i don't know if you can change your pc nic...
If you're not clear what i'm saying or tried it and it doesn't work answer these:
1. are you connected with crossover cable from xbox to xbox nic? if not what?
2. Go to start --> run and type cmd then enter. then type ipconfig and enter and post what is there.
3. Is anything on your network acting as a dhcp server?
4. oh and do you want your xbox to be able to connect through your laptop to get out the dsl router in order to play xbox live?

I'll try to answer the questions...
-I can connect to the net with either nic plugged into my dsl modem.
-Yes, I have crossover cables from the comp to the dsl and the xbox.
-Ipconfig list the following
Ethernet adapter for Xbox.........DNS........(none)
Ethernet for Internet.................DNS........(none)
-I'm not sure about the dhcp server thing, how do I check?
-And yes, I do want to use Live and shoutcast...
