Default Help! - Xbox says NO LINK! - can't connect to pc

sponsored links

I am doing everything the faq's have said. I've entered the right ip's and gateways. statis ip yes. I have done everything faqs said, still my flashfxp wonm't connect to xbox. Nor will the x-box ftp client in the evo-x menu highlight. And in the system settings, it says "No Link!" for line status. Any ideas?

btw, i'm doing a straight connection fron xbox to pc. No hubs involved. And evo-x version if you want to know that is 1_8_3682
Using windows 98. Need to know anything else, just ask.

it's not called crossover, but i think it's the same thing. It's all walmart had. Says it's a Category 5e Snagless patch cable. RJ45 Male/Male Ethernet/Token Ring

i just searched at xbox-scene and found this:

"very important you have a crossover cable. This is how you know if you have a crossover cable take the 2 male ends of the cable put them side by side. if the colored wire patterns are exactly the same it means you have the WRONG cable. You know if you have the right cable when the wires looked mixed up. or in a different pattern compared to other end. make sure of this. its a very crucial part."

So i assume i either have to go and try to find one with diff. wires or buy a hub and another cable like what i have. And i'm broke, spent all i had just to get the cable i have now.
