Fastest Cable for X-Link Kai/Ftp?

Recommended Posts

Is there any benefit to using a Cat6e crossover cable vs. any other type of crossover cable? I expect that the limiting factor would be the NIC in the Xbox, but I was curious to know if there are any benefits to using newer cabling standards for X-Link and FTP.

No, the Xbox only supports 10 or 100 Mbit per second data transfers  - Cat5 will do.

And most newer Ethernet ports support auto-MDI/MDI-x making a crossover cable unnecessary.  The port automagically connects the proper pairs of wires on each end to allow data to be transferred.  The Xbox does not do auto-MDI/MDI-X but if your computer's Ethernet supports it, you are good to go using either a crossover or standard Ethernet cable.

      Hi - I softmodded my xbox original five years ago and didn't use it much because of a house move.  I took it out last night and realised that the upgraded 250GB drive is very noisy and sounds like it is dying.  I upgraded before using Chimp.  I am wondering can I use Chimp again with another 250GB hard drive or does the next hard drive have to be bigger than the 250GB drive?  I have looked for an answer on google but all search returns related to upgrading to a larger drive from the stock drive - there doesn't seem to be anything about swapping a drive for another drive that is equal in size.
      Kind Regards
