    OK, here's my setup going from my TIVO to the internet.

    TIVO connects to the network side of a router and is on a 192.168.15.x network.
    WAN side of the router on my main 192.68.1.x network connects to a wireless bridge.
    Wireless bridge connects through a repeater to my wireless router upstairs.
    WAN side of the wireless router has my cable modem on it.

    TIVO works fine getting on the internet, but my problem is my desktop software can't find my TIVO to pull stuff off of it that I want to save. It says there's no TIVO on my network.

    I know this is just a routing issue, since I have a 192.168.15.x and a 192.168.1.x network. Subnet masks on both networks are 255.255.255.0. Do I have to tell both routers to forward ports to whatever IP the TIVO and my desktop have?

    Thanks a lot for the help in advance.

    You have two options.

    1. remove the IP settings on the internal routers and WAP, so all your devices are on the 192.168.15.x network segment.

    2. Connect the TiVo to the 192.168.1.x side of the network.

    You can't have a router routing traffic on the same network segment, they don't like that very much.
