    I have a series two TIVO that I have not hooked up in two years and I just tried to install it. It will not connect to the Tivo network via dial-up despite the support of their tier 2 techs. Their advice was to network the TIVO into my wireless broadband network at home but I would need an older Linksys wireless adaptor - either the linksys 100tx or Linksys USB200M Ver. 1 (Ver 2 won't work). I searched online for these adaptors but they are out of production and I can't even find them on Ebay. Any suggestions!? Jason

    Will the Tivo wireless adapter work with the software version you have installed currently?

    Those are not wireless adapters, they are wired adapters. That's probably why you couldn't find any on ebay.
    The list of compatible wireless adapters can be found here

    Since your Tivo hasn't connected in 2 years, you may have a software version that's older than version 7.1, so keep that in mind because some of them such as the Tivo branded adapter require v7.1 or later, but any that don't state that requirement will work.

    You can check your software version on the system information screen of your Tivo.
