Advertisements I do not have a router. I DO have a GigaFast 5 port ethernet switch. My cable modem has only one ethernet out which goes to my desktop. I was informed that a switch will not work, so in order to get my TiVo online (which I have yet to achieve), I have to plug directly into the modem, and thus my computer cannot be online. Now...I was also told that the TiVo only needs to get online every 2 weeks to get scheduling info, and does not need continuous internet access. Is this true? If so I can be offline briefly while TiVo does its thing. But, if any of you know a way that both my comp and the TiVo can be online without purchasing further devices, that'd be fabulous! Of course, this is presuming I can activate...I get the N13 error message no matter what I try and after nearly an hour with tech support... TimeWarnerCable M card, HD TiVo, Mac Pro running leopard, and a standard cable internet modem, if any of that info helps. Thanks!
