What needs the static ip address? XP or the XBox or both?

For XP, go to network connections in XP, highlight the LAN connection / properties / TCP/IP. This is where you can put an ip in manually. (It maybe on obtain an ip address automatically). Change it to use the following ip address, and put in an ip address thats valid for the router

I dont know what the XBox options are, so cant tell you where to go or what to do
