I have had this problem once before. I have been using the UnleashX dash with XBMC for months now and have never had an issue with FTP connecting directly to the XBox. I just formatted my laptop and triple booted Ubuntu, Windows XP, and Windows 7. I have the XBox set up to use a DHCP IP. When I try to see the IP, it remains blank or all zeros. What is the problem? It obviously is something to do with my computer...
are there DHCP protocol updates? I know that the XBox won't generate in IP unless the box is connected to my computer when it boots.
I have tried static IPs and all the usual stuff.
Also, I am connecting via a regular ethernet cable, I know I should use a crossover, but I have never needed to.
