    Yeah... If your router doesn't have the ability to make the TiVo's IP address "static" (in that it would assign it the same IP address all the time), you might have to configure the TiVo to use a static IP. I've personally never had to do this, but how to do it should be pretty self-explanatory, from the TiVo's phone and network settings menu.

    Well, looking at your most recent image, what you did doesn't make much sense. You have port 80 forwarding to 192.168.1.102 and port 443 forwarding to 192.168.1.101. They most certainly need to be forwarding to the same place (the IP address of your TiVo).

    What exactly is the problem with your wife's computer? Is it not even pulling an IP address via DHCP?

    Everything is messed up now. I have 2 Tivo's connected to my Router thats why the two addys, Now the only way I can get on-line with either PC is directly thru my Modem, If I try and go thru the router is says it can't get the IP like you said. I tried too Reset the Router and now I can't even get into the router, when I type in 192.168.1.1 nothing happens, I guess I have to call a repairman .... Thanks Anyway
    I just got it to go on line. thats why I haven't answered sooner.

    Hmm... Sorry to hear you're having so many problems with it. If it is in fact the router, it wouldn't be the first time I've seen them go haywire -- most are built pretty cheaply, and die after a few years.

    Could you suggest a Wired Router that will work with the 2 Tivo's and 2 computers? Please

    Any router that runs DHCP and NAT (i.e. all of them) and is in working condition should do just fine.

    Well I give up: I received my new router today and hooked everything up and it worked great for about 15 min. then is disconnects and reconnects every 5 min. no matter what I have plugged in. So this is my last Linksys router... because they are the dumbest people I've ever talked to on the phone. I still think its a setting, but they seem to think if the reset doesn't fix the problem then its broke.... Any suggestions on a router that will work with 2 PC's and 2 Tivo's Wired Router...
    :(

    It's most likely not possible yet... In the future, HME should allow us to do this type of thing.

    I got the new RT31P2 Linksys Router, I only plugged in my 2 PC's. I think I'll pass on connecting the TIVO's since they seem to be the reason my last 2 routers died.
    But thanks for the help azitnay.. I'll just have to plug them into the phone line once a week. If I have a home after the Hurricane goes thru Sunday. Wish us Luck.

    Sorry to hear that you're having so much trouble, but I wouldn't give up on connecting your TiVos to the internet. There's absolutely no reason I can think of that would cause a TiVo to screw up a router. It's basically just a computer.

    I agree with that Drew fella - the TiVo shouldn't be causing your router to fail.

    It is feasible that one of your network adapters *might* be the culprit - but I seriously doubt that too. I'd attempt to get the network working from the ground up - one device and feature at a time. It sounds like you once had things in working order (except for the https page access)?

    I missed this also.
    This means I can download shows at work and watch them there???? Then I guess I dont really need a slingbox. Only advantage would be that I could use it for live TV. And who watches that?
    My boss is away again this will be perfect. Now all I need is my media key...

    I would suggest No-IP.com. You can setup a "virtual server" and one of their domains ie myname.no-ip.com. This will allow you to always access your tivo. A bit of software runs on your PC. You can also setup port forwards. And its free.

    Sure... As long as you have decent upstream bandwidth, or don't mind waiting :).

    I'm stuck on a 768Kbps upstream DSL line at home (which is actually pretty decent for a standard DSL connection; I had 384Kbps for a very long time), so at a minimum it takes me 2 hours or so to transfer a 30-minute medium quality recording over the internet.

    I can't speak for No-IP.com, but be sure not to overlook DynDNS.org, run by TC member Krellis.

    I'm away from home right now and for the next week and my bookmarks to my TiVo Now Playing via my router aren't working. I use the bookmarks all the time from work so I know they're right.

    Other non-TiVo things I can access like usual so I know my computer and/or router are working fine.

    My TiVo was working fine yesterday before I left but now I'm worried.

    Do I have to enable HME to get this to work? I usually do but I rebooted the TiVo before I left and failed to re-start HME. Would that be why it's not working?

    (if so, that'll ease my worries)

    Slower...
    Ever since my tivo connected last night around 10pm eastern, Tivo2Go functionality ceased. Same for a lot of others...

    I want to join in on this list and that is why I am posting. I don't have the time to go over what is happening here but it sounds like a solution to my two router problem I have and I want this posting to show up in my list.
    I thought there used to be a way to do that without having to post and there probably is (I am sure somebody will show me in the next post) but I could not find it and was too lazy to look any further.
