TPXL Wireless N Adaptor

Every now and then the adaptor switches speeds from 5.0 down to 2.4.
I used to be able to reset it by either pulling the power cord for the adaptor, or cycling the WPS off/on at the router.
For the past few months, neither of these worked - though occasionally the adaptor would switch back to 5.0 on its own.
I haven't got the slightest idea of what to look for that may help lock the adaptor speed at 5.0....any thoughts on this?

The router is a NetGear WNDR4000 (N750) installed Aug. 2011, and the adaptor is Tivos own 'N' model.
The rest of the wireless system consists of
1 laptop
1 printer
1 sb5100 cable modem

What kind of wired devices do you have on your network?

Just these 2 devices are hardwired in the network.
Desktop computer...OS = WinXP SP3 (the laptop runs Win7 Home Premium).
Printer - ethernet cable to desktop...Same printer as used wireless with laptop.

If everything was wireless, and you were feeding that router from a cable modem, I was going to suggest putting both where the TiVo and television are and hooking up the TiVo via Ethernet cable.

Instead, give the TiVo a fixed IP address, and then see if the Netgear doesn't have a setting somewhere that can restrict that address to just connecting at 5GHz.
