    Calling all oldtimers....I mean Humax drt800 experts:up:

    For faster transfers and ease of set up should I use:
    1. AGO100 wireless G
    2. ANO100 wireless N "bridged"

    Please consider I have little to no Tivo knowledge and even less computer literacy,:eek:

    THANKS VERY MUCH for any help:)

    These are the fastest wireless adapters, as they off load some of the processing to the adapter itself. I haven't used either of these adapters, so I can't give you a comparison, but others have reported that these are faster than the other wireless adapters, and they are designed to work specifically with TiVos.

    Please keep in mind the Series 2 TiVos don't transfer very fast no matter what adapter you use. But the TiVo adapters should give you the least amount of problems.

    Hope that helps,

    Sorry I didn't notice your post sooner.

    I vote for the TiVo G adapter if you have to go wireless.

    (For a wired connection, the old Netgear FA120 USB to Ethernet adapter, or one other model by a different company that I can't remember at the moment, would be the way to go, but they're hard to find these days, especially at decent prices. And speaking of prices, check Craigslist for a used TiVo G at around $20 to $30)


    I'm pretty sure the N has to be plugged into the TiVo's Ethernet jack, and the Humax doesn't have one, just a couple of USB ports.

    I've got a Humax doing light duty, but 'though it sits about 3 feet from a stack of routers, I don't have any spare LAN ports so I'm using the G with the Humax and it works fine.

    I've also used the G with other TiVos and it's a good little unit.
