    New Roamio Plus. Have had it for about 2 weeks. No problems until the last few days where the Roamio informs me that there's a problem with my network connection. I go through and reconnect it to wifi, and I notice it's "very low (36%)" which is odd because the access point works fine with all my other equipment.

    Then today, the connection has been lost again....

    Anyone else seeing these wifi issues?? I don't know what to do here...

    OK, now it's connected and shows 100% strength to the wifi network, but when I force a connection to the Tivo network, it goes to the Network step and says "Network cable unplugged???

    I am going to ask a stupid question...

    If an Ethernet connection isn't available, why wouldn't you setup the Roamio using MOCA? It is far more reliable with better throughput.

    I am not sure about your Wi-Fi network, sometimes you can get outside interference with Wi-Fi and it will provide inconsistent connectivity.

    I plan to try that later (once I get an adapter), but for now, wifi is the only option.

    I really don't get why it's giving me trouble two weeks into it, though. Now I can't even connect at all, giving me a N09 error.

    Reboot your router and see if that fixes the problem. I have also heard people having luck setting a specific IP device in the router settings.

    +1 for setting specific IP using MAC address, I've had far less issues w/ wifi connections since.

    Interesting, I will try the static IP and see if that helps.
