From your PC click start-run and type cmd, click OK. type ipconfig /all <press enter> The information that pops up should be what you need to manually configure your TiVo. You should record the gateway ip and subnet mask from the results. if you want to, you can give your TiVo the same ip as your computer, but they can't be plugged into the network at the same time. You best bet is to take your PC's ip address and start assigning an address on your TiVo changing only the last number. xxx.xxx.xxx.2, xxx.xxx.xxx.3, etc. The xxx's represent the IP address numbers listed on your computer. Unless they're specifcally blocking the ports TiVo uses you should eventually find an IP address that works. Keep in mind however that it might fail if you assign an address and another PC logs on with the same address.
