Default I can't even setup the network, please help

sponsored links

Ok, I bought an RJ45 cable from Best Buy the other day and last night I got around to trying to network my PC to my Xbox. I connect the cable to both. I run network setup, but I really don't know what I'm doing. Do I have to get log off of the internet to properly network this. I've looked at the various guides on here but I'm still lost. I go into network connections and scan for hardware changes in hopes that it will acknowledge the cable, to no avail however. Can somebody lead me down the right path please?

Sounds like you're on track... keep in mind that when you use fxp you will have to input the ip address of you xbox as well as your user name and password. The evox default is xbox xbox. If you are using a guide, where exactly are you getting stuck? What errors are happening?

Simple Guide: Connecting XBOX to PC
Written by unr3al

Ive noticed that their is no real simple guide on connecting the xbox to your pc although their are guides on other sites they dont make it clear or simple enough for those that just want to do games and put games on the HD so here is a dead simple working guide for everyone,

Im assuming that you own an xbox that is capable of playing backups and has evolution x installed.

Right first off you need to go get yourself a network card any will do, you can get them for 2 at computer fairs or pc world has them in for 10.

Then you need to get a CROSSOVER CABLE, i use a belkin one its yellow 2 metres long and its only 7 at pc world.

Then install the network card in your pc.

Now here is the bit that most people seem to have questions about.
Go into evox (if you are running it from your xbox HD or a cd) and go to settings, then move down to Use Static IP and make sure it says YES, then go to IP, and make it, then go to Default Gateway and make it, then save and exit.

Now go to your PC go to control panel then network connections, now double click on netwok connection now in the box that has appeared highlight the TCP/IP bit and click properties, it says "OBTAIN AN IP ADDRESS AUTOMATICALLY" and "USE THE FOLLOWING IP ADDRESS" tick "USE THE FOLOWING IP ADDRESS" then in the box that says IP address type in then go the SUBNETMASK box and make sure it says, then click OK.

Now you have got your pc and you xbox ready to go ALMOST, what you need now is a program called FLASHFXP you can get it in a free 30 day trial format which you will find if you search for it in GOOGLE, then once you have FLASHFXP install it on your PC.

Now take the CROSSOVER CABLE you bought and plug one end into your xbox,s ethernet port on the back, then plug the other into your network card, now start your pc up (if you have any firewalls or anything like that turn them off completely) now switch your xbox on (no disc in the xbox) you will now have a connection between your PC and your XBOX.

Now open up FLASHFXP go over to the little orange lightening symbol and click it then click on QUICK CONNECT now you get a box, in the SERVER OR URL box type in then in the USER NAME box type xbox, then in the PASSWORD box type xbox, now make sure the box that says PORT has got 21 in it, then click on CONNECT you will then see a bunch of folders apear in the right hand side window and in the bottom right hand side window it will tell you the connection info now you are inside your xbox YAY.

This is the simplest way to do this if you are just looking to edit menus or copy games stuff like that.


Hope this helps.

I understand that someone will say "but if they have evox on their HD they have already connected to their xbox" NO alot of people buy it all ready done and anyway if you are running it from a cd you can still use my guide
