Hello, after weeks of trying to ftp my xbox, ive concluded that my ethernet port is not reactive. Ive reinstalled it also, to no avail. So will something like (http://cgi.ebay.com/NEW-Realtek-USB-to-Ethernet-Network-LAN-Adapter-NIC-G9_W0QQitemZ5827840470QQcategoryZ11182QQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem) allow me to network my xbox and pc with flash fxp?

plugging that into the xbox? no, it wouldnt have the right drivers (no theres no way to make it have the right drivers unless you use linux)
plugging that into your PC would work if its the PC nic that broken

If its the Xbox side thats gone . perplexer repairs these or can supply the chip I believe.
Just because you can't get ftp to work does not mean the NIC is the problem though so make sure.

Its the nic on my pc. Yesterday i ftp'ed my box at my friends house, so my xbox is fine...

buy and install a new nic card. They are cheap. How do you go online via your comp?

I have a usb modem, so the ethernet is not needed. Is buying and installing a new nic really nessesary? Thanks leppper

Since you are using a USB modem, have you made sure that your NIC is enabled? Are you also using a crossover cable or connecting through a router/hub/switch? Have you assigned an IP address to the NIC? To the XBOX?

Yes i have tried a crossover cable. In fact, i cant even install my router because my web browser can't detect it. Im not that experienced with computers, but i think the ethernet port is the bluetooth device protocol??? Under status it says: The device cannot start.

Will the usb adapter work? Just to skip the complications of the nic card(past video card did not install correctly)

You'll probably get better speed with a new NIC card. I've got one sitting around that's never been installed.

Im not really looking to transfer big files, so will the usb adapter work?
