TiVo Wireless USB Adapter on a PC

Due to rearrangement of hardware in my house, I no longer am using a TiVo USB adapter (AG0100).

I'm wondering if this thing can be used on a PC. I tried plugging it in, found no drivers, either locally or on Windows Update. Not surprised by that, but I was curious if it's possible to use it as a wireless adapter for a PC.

As you found out, there are no drivers, so no, it won't work. The Tivo adapter is a special wireless adapter with additional circuitry to off load signal processing from the Tivo's anemic CPU. It will only work on a Tivo. You could sell it, and get one that will work with your PC.

Have a look around on sourceforge.net. Some one cooked up some drivers a while back and posted the code there. Never tried it personally.

So, I only have 2 posts and it won't let me post a link. If you google "sourceforge tivo driver" you'll see it.

From the sourceforge.net site:
"Currently, the linux device driver provides a non-encrypted link to the access point, supporting a core subset of the wireless extensions. The windows device driver only supports firmware download at this time. The device drivers have not yet been released."

I would take this to mean that you can get an unencrypted basic link with a Linux system and that there is no usable driver for a Windows PC. Since the last update is over 2 years old, I assume no one carried the project any further.
