Try updating XBMC to the most recent version which is v3.5.3.

When changing any network settings on the Xbox always restart XBMC or reboot the Xbox.

With the Xbox and FTP I've had completely different experiences depending on what OS I was using. Only my old XP 32bit laptop I simply could not get DHCP to work via my router but using a direct laptop to Xbox connection and Static address: no problems. Swapping later to a desktop with Win7 64bit and using the same router DHCP works fine. However trying exactly the same Static address set up that worked with XP and it refuses to connect.

I've tried different FTP clients, checking firewall settings even using a cross-over cable, which shouldn't now be necessary, and still it will only connect via the router using DHCP.

All I can suggest is trying the opposite method to what you are using now and hope it works.

What IP address does the Xbox have and the PC?

They must be on the same subnet to work.

192.168.1.xxx and 192.168.2.yyy with subnet 255.255.255.0 cannot talk to each other logically even when connected to the same physical network. The first three digits have to match; e.g, 192.168.1, 192.168.2 or other; with each network attached device assigned a unique number between 1 and 254 for the last dotted decimal value.
