I read a lot of people complaining about network transfer time not being what its supposed to be. I think its pertinent to know, an often overlooked fact is that when company's report the speed of a product it is in Mbps, as in Megabit per second, not Megabyte. There are 8 Mbits in a Mbyte, so divide the advertised speed by 8 to get how many MB/sec it transfers. 108 Mb/s = ~13.5MB/s, 54Mb/s = ~6MBps, 11Mb/s = ~ 1.375MB/s.

1MB = 8 Mb. Also, there is transmission loss when dealing with wireless bu tit isn't devastating to the speed. a 100BaseT ethernet line is comparable to a strong connection on a Wireless 108Mbps network.....just thought i'd help you gusy out a bit.

Okay, I have my XBOX and my computer in my room. My computer has a wireless USB Adapter and an open ethernet port. Is there anyway I can connect my XBOX to my pc and use it's internet access so that I can go on Live!.

I've been successfully ftping to my xbox with a crossover cable for some months now. However, I recently just tried to ftp (using the exact same method I have hundreds of times) and it just won't work for me.

My xbox's IP is the default 192.168.100.10, I set my PC's ip to 192.168.100.11

FlashFXP seems to connect when I click the connect button, but none of my xbox's directories appear in its window and I get this in the log window:

Connecting to 192.168.100.10
Connected to 192.168.100.10 Port 21
220 Please enter your login name now.
USER xbox
331 Password required for xbox.
PASS (hidden)
230 User xbox logged in , proceed.
SYST
215 UNIX Type: L8
REST 100
502 rest is not implemented.
This site may not allow file resuming
PWD
257 "/" is current directory
TYPE A
200 Type set to ASCII.
PASV
502 pasv is not implemented.
PORT 192,168,100,11,4,221

nothing happens for a few moments, and I finally get something along the lines of this:

425 Can't open data connection to 192.168.100.11:14852
502  ˘ ˛ ˛abor is not implemented.


I've tried a couple of other ftp clients just in case but I get the same problems.

This is indeed puzzling.

i had the same problem
in the last part it says:

PASV
502 pasv is not implemented.

in FlashFXP--->Options--->Preferences(or press F6)--->Proxy/Firewall/Ident

uncheck the box "Use Passive Mode"

If you connect to the internet using a dialup connection you will use an RJ11(modem) - telephone socket to connect to your phone line.

ok
I have a brief question which was already posted once or twice but not answered yet
however

DO I need to have a Dashboard (like evoX) installed on my xbox to build up a ftp-connection or does it work with the usual dashboard (from MS).

Cause I've tried to ftp my xbox via crossovercable directly - ip-configuration is right - that's for sure, but I couldn't connect - there wasn't any response either.
(aditional info: I'm running windows XP service pack 2)

thanks

I have a problem connectiong now that I'm using my router to share dsl with another computer. Before When all I was using was the router and just the xbox I could connect fine and dandy but throw in a dsl connection and it's a whole different story. My router ip is 192.168.0.1 it's the same for dhcp server,dns server and default gateway. Now I tried the method I read about , about turning off static ip and rebooting to see what ip the xbox would pick up and it picked up 192.168.0.103 so I know that is the same range as the ip of my pc which is 192.168.0.100. I tried this ip in flashfxp and nothing no connection. I changed in evox the ip to 192.168.0.103 the defualt gateway as 192.168.0.1 and both dns slots as 192.168.0.1 . Does anybody got any ideas on how I can fix this to work with the router and also have the dsl enabled incase I want to play with kialink or something. It's been about two weeks since I have connected to the xbox. thanks

Hi, ok i'm finding out i'M a big noob to this FTP thing...i've been browsing this forum four hours now and i'M starting to hallucinate crossover cables and network cards everywhere....

Here is what i want to know.

I have 1 network card on my PC, 1 xbox, 1 cable modem, 1 crossover cable and Flash FXP. Is it possible, to FTP my XBOX/PC together ? I don't care if i lose internet connection while i FTP. If it is possible, what do i need to connect where, and what should be my IP settings ? If it ain't possible, what am i missing ? I've looked at some turorials on here but i can't get it to work and right now my head is about to explode.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks

Hi Everyone, I just bought a chipped xbox v1.6 last week and I am trying to connect it to my PC with a crossover cable.

I have read numerous websites and have set my settings as follows:

PC
Static IP: 192.168.0.1
Subnet: 255.255.255.0

XBOX
Static IP: 192.168.0.2
Subnet: 255.255.255.0

Flashfxp
IP: 192.168.0.2
Port: 21
username: xbox
password: xbox

When I try to connect with these settings using Flashfxp I get this error:
Connecting to 192.168.0.2 -> IP=192.168.0.2 PORT=21
Connected to 192.168.0.2
Connection failed (Connection lost)

Any Ideas?

i had the same problem, now i get 4,500+ with flash fxp. go into your router settings and make sure that the ip for your xbox has port 21 tcp/udp opened. thats all i did. i usually do all my transfers while the xbox sits at evox' main menu.

I recently bought a belkin network card for my laptop and a belkin ethernet bridge for my xbox.
I have an xecuter 2.6 fitted running evolution dashboard.
I don't have the slightest idea about networks and was wondering how to set it up. I don't have a router and just want the two connected to swap files. any help would be extremely valuable
