Can't see that in the instructions. That should be 'sudo modprobe' in both lines.

Re: Raspbmc Ethernet ssh not working

Some time ago SSH to Raspbmc stopped working for me.
In my case I had to edit '/etc/xinetd.d/ssh config': change 'flags = IPv6' to 'flags = IPv4'.

Kun je wat meer info geven over je systeem. Het enige dat we nu weten is dat je een Pi hebt met een wifi dongle en je speelt films af. Gebruik je b.v. puur Raspbian met XBMC geinstalleerd of gebruik je 1 van de XBMC distro's (b.v. Openelec, Raspbmc). Moet je op de open wifi netwerken alsnog inloggen...

AFAICS this is about the XBMC (or maybe Raspbmc) logo. not the RasPi logo. The OP is aware of the nologo solution for that one.

Are you sure the machine at that address is your Pi?
Looking at IP address, combined with the open ports, I would guess it's a router.

Niet rechtstreeks want de Pi heeft geen bluetooth dongle.
Er zijn echter wel apps voor XBMC remote besturing via wifi.
