PC Selected failed



Can anyone help me?

I have my pc directly connected to my xbox 360. i have no router, so i guess its directly connected to the modem in the back of my base unit.

i have manually set up the ip addresses of both the pc and xbox and it says the ip address is fine (pc is and xbox but when it gets to pc selected, it says its failed.

what seems to be the problem?

Any thoughts?

ICS is off, still getting the same problem. baffled at what could be causing it.

I think you may need to use a "crossover" type LAN cable rather than a straight thru type?
