Yes I am also having the same problem where I have installed vista ultimate & the network in vista does not see my xbox. I can still access my network shares located on vista hard drives while in xbmc. I can also ping xbox in a command prompt in vista.
Like the previous post in winxp I just added the xbox to my network by adding a ftp link to it (ftp://xbox:firstname.lastname@example.org)
I did some trolling on various forums but had trouble locating anything that related to this situation. I found one site hxxp://www.tweakvista.com/article39001.aspx that mentioned that vista basically sees the xbox as a NAS device & it mentioned that a network service had to be changed. I did this, but still had no luck.
I might try the media centre section of vista as that might be the best solution for now..
Would appreciate any help if anyone has any ideas on how to resolve this network problem..
I was wondering if you are still having problems..
I was able to connect following this instructions:Assuming you have Vista OS and are connected directly to your xbox from your PC/Laptop with an ethernet cable:
Go to Network & Sharing Centre,
Click 'Manage Network Connections'
Right-Click 'Local Area Connection'
Click 'Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4)'
Click 'Use the following IP address'
Enter IP Address: 192.168.0.1 and Subnet Mask 255.255.255.0
Make sure your Xbox has a static IP - usually 192.168.0.2
Set FlashFXP up to recognise your xbox using the static IP address you assigned it and enter 'xbox' for both the username and pass.
Works for me on my Vista laptop.
Hope this works.
Well yesterday I modded a XBOX and now I have VISTA OS...
I didnt have an issue connecting to the XBOX using the tutorial above...
But the connection was so slow 1kb per second.
I tried and tried and played with it to see if i could figure something out,
but nothing.. so I was just wondering if you or anybody who reads this have
had the same issue... And how did you manage it to have the FTP connection
at full speed using VISTA OS ... today when I get home im going to try
WindowsXP to see if that's where the issue is... If I get the same connection
speed then i'll know for sure it's the cable and not the OS
