    If you are assigning the Tivo a static ip of 192.168.1.102, then the Tivo will not show up in your DHCP map as you are not using DHCP to give it an IP address. Unless you have changed it, most Linksys routers start DHCP addresses at 192.168.1.100. The router would give the first device it finds an IP of 192.168.1.101 then next would be 102 and so on. If yours starts there and you are not limiting the maximum number of DHCP addresses to 2, then the static IP you have assigned your Tivo is in your DHCP range which is most likely causing your problems.

    I have my DHCP start at 100 and assign a maximum of 10 IP's meaning my DHCP list would stop at 110. The static IP's I assign my Tivos start at 192.168.1.120 and go up from there to avoid any IP conflicts.

    That might explain why the router is not showing the tivo in the clients list (although there is another computer on the network showing at 192.168.1.103), but why then am I able to telnet/ping but not ftp?

    Must I get dos2unix and .tar on the tivo before the rbautch file will run successfully? If so, and considering I can't ftp, how can I get them there? I tried putting those files on my zipper cd and copying them to the tivo but then it would not boot. Arrrgghhhhh!! It is always the little things that end up kicking your butt for days on end!!!

    zipper puts dos2unix and tar and everything else you need to get tivo up and running.
    after you zipper, and boot tivo and are able to ping, have you rebooted Tivo?
    Try that if not.

    Gunny, thanks for the reply. Yes, have rebooted MANY times, lol!! I can telnet fine and can ping fine just can't ftp and don't know my way around well enough to do what I need from the telnet prompt. Have run rbautch many times but it never goes all the way through the setup after you enter 'y' for expert setup and I am never able to answer any questions at all.

    Strangely, the first few times I rebooted, the tivo would show up in the dhcp client list but no longer does so. :(

    ok you can telnet, that's a good start.
    from bash
    do a ps
    see if tivoftpd is running
    if it is, then detail for me if you can from a command prompt get in to ftp
    just type ftp then hit enter
    then type open (whatever your tivo IP address is) and hit enter
    report the results here

    Secure Client VPN is one application known to interfere with FTP. Check /busybox to make sure tar is there. When telnetting, are you following the instructions for Windows XP SP2 users?

    I'd forgotten about that.
    We had the exact same issue on Frylock's machines and used that VPN.

    I am able to use ftp to other locations no prob and know my way around that program pretty well. When you say do a 'ps' how do I do that or what is it? I do not nave any vpn running at all and have disabled all firewalls and am using the latest zipper and rbautch files from 11.13 I think. Is there a command from the bash promt to start tivoftpd?

    does your tivo have access to the Internet?
    Two ways to check this
    1) install javahmo from javahmo.sourceforge.net and start a plugin that would hit the internet for info like The weather.
    2) temporarily disable the two route commands in rc.sysinit.author by puting a # in front of them and reboot the Tivo.
    If your tivo CAN hit the internet, I'm scratching my head, if it can't You need to see if your router is blocking tivo from internet access, if it isn't, then you need to determine the dns address your ISP uses. this can be found in your router's setup pages.
    Once you have this info run the netconfig module in tivoweb and put in the dns address in the appropriate blank. Reboot tivo.
    This should fix it.

    Do you think the Instantcake image for the Samsung-S4080 and S4120 are close enough to use one or the other on both?

    I am so freaking close to hacking my tivo's and its thank to you guys that I will most likely do it in the next few weeks. Thank you

    That's an awfully personal question, Gunny.

    Tried both 'ps' and 'tivoftpd' at bash (following the instructions for xpsp2) and get command not found on both. Is there a command to tell it to run ps or ftp or are those executable by just enetering the name?

    Between 180 and 250 most likely.

    Actually one more quick question. Do you think Zipper and all the tools would work on a laptop using an external HD encloser? Thanks again,

    right
    those two commands are all you should need
    try
    cd /busybox
    then the commands.
    I wonder if something is screwy with the author file.

    Gunny-
    This is starting to sound suspiciously like the situation I had, with the fubared busybox.

    in answer to question 1 either instantcake image would be fine then
    question 2: I'm afraid not. The boot disk doens't have USB drivers for IDE enclosures on it. So you will need a desktop PC.
