Ok here's my situation. ATM, I don't have a router and need a solution for something in the meantime. The PC is hooked up to the modem through the USB connection and I still have the ethernet port left (I have both ports on the back of th modem). If I plug both the Xbox and the PC in at the same time, both the USB and Ethernet lights blink, but only one thing seems to get Internet at any given time (usually the box). Anyways, I have also noticed through running winipcfg on my computer (Win98SE) that the ip address is different than the xbox by one number when they are both hooked up (PC ends with 178, Xbox ends with 179) however I can't for the life of me FTP or network the two together. Is it possible for me to somehow do this?
Please don't be afraid to start talking about DNS or Gateways, I have a pretty sound understanding of networking but this one has got me stumped. I'll give any information I can!
