I've hooked up my computer and my xbox together following the tutorial, but it doesn't work at all.
I left all the settings as they were by default. My nic's IP is 192.168.0.1, and in evoX it says the xbox is 192.168.0.3 and the gateway 192.168.0.1. When I connect the crossover cable, the xbox says it's 100/FULL DUPLEX, but the IP remains 0.0.0.0.
I'm running windows XP, with no firewall and my nic is a 3Com 3C905TX.
I really don't understand what's wrong...
Is my xbox defect ?

he Xbox is probably set up for DHCP. Set the "Use Static IP" to yes.

I tried both settings actually... Thanks anyway...
Should the xbox and/or the PC be rebooted after changing the settings ?

Can you ping the Xbox from the PC?
Oct 16 2003, 11:12 PM
Nope, no luck...
I tired connecting to the xbox with win98 on my other hdd, but still nothing.

Bad cable? Are you sure that: 1. The cable is a cross-over cable 2. That is works correctly.

Yes, I'm sure it's a crossover cable, and I just bought it today, so...
The xbox actually does see when I change my NIC from 100/FULL DUPLEX to 10/HALF DUPLEX for example, so there IS somekind of connection between the two...
Please don't tell me my xbox is defect !

I have had some NICs (PC) that, when I try to force a duplex mode, just don't work. I had a laptop once that I set to 100mb full duplex. It would never work. But, when I set it back to Auto Sense, everything was fine. Try setting the PC to Auto Sense.

It's set up in auto sence.
WHEN is the IP supposed to show up anyway (I mean on the top spot of the SETTINGS menu in evoX) ?
When you plug the cable, it changes from "NO LINK" to the static IP you've entered (126.96.36.199 in my case) ?
Or do you need to reboot the xbox for it to show up ?
Because when I plug the cable, all it says for the IP is 0.0.0.0.

I have always had to reboot after plugging in the cable. If I boot and the cable is not in, nothing ever shows up, even after plugging the cable in, until after I reboot.
Edit: Reboot the Xbox that is...

Ok, I just might have a clue then !
I noticed that when I boot up the xbox with evoX, the setting for USE STATIC IP automatically switches to NO. So if I change it, I basically have to reboot as you said, but as it switches back to NO, it expects a dynamic IP from a DHCP server...
So I guess I should burn another evoX and change the .ini file so it says USE STATIC IP : YES.
Hope it'll work...

Errrrr... I feel a little a little stupid...
I just noticed that "SAVE AND EXIT" option at the bottom of the menu and hmmmm... Now it works.
I managed to connect to the xbox with an ftp and the ping test was ok.
Thanks for your help !
