    I have an old Tivo 2 Humax which I keep running because it is easy to burn DVD's for relatives with no cable.

    All of a sudden my Humax will not connect to the Tivo service. It sees my network (wireless) and shows a connection. It has a valid IP address. But when I try to connect to the Tico service, the regular error is no DHCP.

    My router hasnt changed and my other Tivo HD connects fine.

    I have rebooted the router (multiple times), rebouted the Tivo (multiple times). run the set up for the network connector and everything else on the Tivo site.

    I am at a loss.

    Why no DHCP when the router is set for DHCP?

    Could my hardware be failing?

    What makes it worse is that this is my machine with Lifetime!

    Try setting your DHCP to the router's IP (usually

    Edit: set the DNS and Gateway servers to above.

    Are you sure you mean DHCP?

    and not DNS server?

    If the the TiVo has the same IP number as the router, that's two devices with the same "address" and I don't think any good will come of that.

    What I would suggest is to give everything on the network that doesn't travel a fixed IP address, shrink the router DHCP address pool down to one or two more addresses than needed with the fixed IP addresses outside of that range, reboot everything, and see if the computer can ping the TiVo's newly assigned fixed IP address.
