Ethernet (CAT5) is the less expensive route and there are no security issues. I have a TiVo wireless/n adapter on one box since I'm too lazy to run a cable up one floor. WiFi is ok unless you plan on super HD streaming. Then you have other factors to deal with.

Seriously? You didn't do ANY research about TiVo before purchasing? You didn't read a product description (which clearly explains the need for an Internet connection)? You expect to be spoon fed all information?
