I have had my modded xbox for over a year now and have never had problems trying to ftp. Not even the first time. I have always used flashfxp. But I got a virus on my computer, so I backed everything up and reinstalled windows. Three days later I tried to connect and it wouldn't work. My hub has a light on it showing that it knows the xbox is there. But evox and xbox media center both have 0.0.0.0 as my ip. Whenever I look at my local area connects status it has 169.254.250.229 as my ip address. Before I reinstalled windows, I made it use 192.168.0.3. I tried that and it still didn't work. Maybe someone can help me out.
