My brother is having problems with his tivo disappearing from his network. I could use some suggestions if at all possible.
This is with a series 2 tivo, tivo wireless adapter, and linksys wireless "b" router. I forgot the model #.
This has happened a few times before but has not happened in ~6 months or so. At least oone of the times I had to go out and re-enter all the netowr WEP info. Not sure why it lost it? One other time it couldn't find the network but after several tries it all of a sudden appeared. The router is in a different room but is literally 10-15 ft. away through regualr sheetrock (no concrete, etc.) From what I remember reception was always in the 70% or 80% at least.
I plan on going over soon to have a look but I'm really not sure what I can do other than start from scratch. I do know I will upgrade the routers firmware.
Currently he is switching back to phone line until I can get by there.
BTW is there any way the tivo can show a message when it fails to connect? I htink he said he got a message that showed only ~2 days left of programming. That's a bit short notice for my taste.
Any more info needed, ask away.
