    I have an old Toshiba RS-TX20 that's got a lifetime sub. I rarely use it, but since it's there, I want to be able to use it. I have a Netgear WG111 that has worked for years. That replaced a DLink DWL-G122 to get G over B.

    Anyway, the light on the Netgear wireless has been flashing for a while now and I only intermittently get guide data. I thought the problem was with the network since I was only seeing 1 of 2 routers and only getting 1%-44% signal strength. I played with some things (both adapters, new cable, different port, playing with router settings, etc) and now I'm not seeing any network at all. I added a router plugged in right next to the unit to see if that would improve things, but I still can't see it with the Tivo (the phone has no issue connecting to any of them from the same location as the Tivo, so it's not the wireless routers). I tried the adapters in an XP machine and both work fine.

    So, I figure the only thing left that this could be is the Tivo itself be it hardware (bad USB port?) or software (settings?). Anyone have any suggestions? Maybe there's a way to dissable/reenable networking? I could buy a wired or wireless adapter off ebay for cheap, but if the issue is with the Tivo, I'd rather fix that first rather than having more junk drawer clutter.
