I luckily found a usb adapter in the last store in town that I checked. I opened up the package to see that its shaped pretty oddly. I can't believe something that seems so flimsy costs $30. I keep trying and trying, but I can't get the rj45 to be secure and work at the same time. After getting tired of it falling off, I pull the tivo out, and hold the rj45 while tivo tries to connect. It first said that it couldn't find an adapter, but now it says dhcp not found. I'm thinking this is due to it not being in correctly, because I borrowed my friends usb adapter and it worked flawlessly without any settings needed to be changed. I don't know what I'm doing wrong. Thanks Frank Edit: I tried a different Rj45 cable, and with the Tivo in my hand, I can see the lights lit up in the back of the adapter, and I get an error that theres no network adapter.
