Posted: Thu Apr 02, 2009 9:16 pm Post subject: I got FTP going and everything seems fine but
For some reason I cant connect to xbox live. I just got this xbox and I myself dont have an account, but I noticed there was one on it so I just tried to see if it would log in and it wont. It says I cant connect or something along those lines and than says some other information. I am using A Linksys WGA54G Wireless-G Gaming Adapter.
Now the thing is when I setup ftp ( I believe I have DHCP enabled) everything is fine. I did a ping test and the packets sent over fine. When I use flashxp and connect to my xbox it works like it should showing my drives and all that. I was able to backup my eeprom to my computer fine like this. So there is some kind of connection right.
I am not connected directly to the computer for ftp. I have the wireless g adapter connected to my xbox and I believe its getting signal from my qwest dsl modem with wireless gateway. Everything else works fine, my psp, wii, ds etc etc. Just for some reason it seems like I'm missing something here with the xbox.
Now I'm thinking it could be because that xbox live account is somebody elses and not mine, but still even when I just try to connect it dont let me. I'm sure theres certain settings I might have to configure on my router and the linksys web utility page (which was a hassle to get into, but once I config some settings I can get into it fine, of course I have to hook the adapter directly to computer for this utility page to show up).
Just wondering if anyone else has these problems. I can ftp so I'm thinking theres some kind of connection there. I'm not to sure about the xbox live account. Being its not mine and all, and my box is modded, could that be why I cant get in?? If I was to setup an account myself would I still have these problems?? Its not a big issue to me really but I want to be able to get my box connected to the net so I can use xbmc for certain things.
I'm deciding on whether to try to get xmbc as a dash or an app?? I dont wanna risk messing up my xbox trying to place it as my dash, but I would love for xbmc to be my main dash. I've read some tutorials and I dont understand the best way to do it. I looked over this one http://www.xbox-hq.com/html/xbox-tutorials-222.html for dhcp. I didnt use the ftp way he post about Go to Internet Explorer in the address bar type in
Instead I'm using flashfxp for ftp and its working good. In that tutorial he talks about setting it up so you can go on the internet and all that cool stuff. Am I actually able to go on the internet being the fact I cant access the xbox live?? I mean I can ftp so I'm thinking theres some kind of connection there, but I want to be able to be on the internet of course.
I know people have problems with these adapters, but I figure since I got the ftp working at least theres something there. Any light on this would be much appreciated and if anyone else is using this adapter and has the same problem or ran into the same problem and fixed it let me know whats up. Thanks in advance.

To go on xbox live you will need a duel boot softmod with the ms dash as the duel boot selection.
When you turn the xbox on with the eject button it will boot to the ms dash. If you try to go online without the ms dash the softmod won't let you sign on because you would get banned. _________________

Yeah I kind of figured that. Unleashx does have a option to get to msdash and thats how I been trying to log in but some how I cant. I think it might be something with my router/adapter settings, although I'm not sure cause I can get ftp going fine when the linksys is hooked up to the xbox. I'll just have to look into it more and see what I can come up with.
