i am having trouble setting up the evo-x when i connect to my computer. I have read all the tutorials and none seem to help. I installed and flashed the xodus mod chip. I put in a new dvd rom (temporary-on top of xbox one) and i loaded up evo-x (i loaded up new one but it didn;'t have a save and exit command in the network settings area so now i loaded previous one). I hook up comp to xbox with rj45 crossover cable: maybe this is problem....this is the one i used:

http://www.compusa.c...uct_code=289965

Then i changed settings in comp to:
Ip: 192.168.0.67
Subnet: 255.255.255.0
Gateway: 192.168.0.1

And i changed (well most settings were already there) in xbox to
Static IP: Yes
IP: 192.168.0.3
Subnet: 255.255.255.0
Gateway: 192.168.0.1

Then i opened up flashfxp and put my comp hard drive on left and connected to
192.168.0.3 with username and pw as xbox

I tried with my firewall...zone alarm off and on no difference

flash fxp says could not connect to host (timed out)

I have tried all different techniques and i cant figure out why it isn't working

BTW i have a cable modem so i am using an ethernet card and i have windows XP

Please HELP

THANKS

The cable you are using is fine.

Make sure that you get green lights on both the LAN card of your PC and your Xbox as well.

Power both down, then restart them with the cables already connected.

Once they are both up open a dos prompt and type

"ping 192.168.0.3" from your Xbox.

You should see:

Reply from 192.168.0.3: bytes=32 time<1ms TTL=255
Reply from 192.168.0.3: bytes=32 time<1ms TTL=255

If not you haven't fillout out the TCP/IP section for your LAN card properly or there is something that you are not telling us about.

If you DO see the above, you should be able to "talk" to the Xbox using FlashXP.

Look at my post here:
http://xbox-scene.fx...e4c040d8d63a581
I give an example of the settings for the xbox & the PC when using a crossover cable.
It looks to me as though the gateway setting on the xbox is incorrect. It should be using the PC's primary IP.
