    Connect with ethernet to the PC (requires network adapter), and use ICS. Serial PPP would be another option.

    So, just plug a cat 5 into the tivo and my portable pc cat 5 port, then use the wireless adapter in my portable to connect via my ISP to tivo central (using the tivo screen ?).

    Get a router if you have a broadband internet connection, that’s the easiest way.

    Otherwise, you’ll need to set up Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) on your PC, and make a peer-to-peer connection from your TiVo to the PC. I’m not sure, but you may need a cross over cable for a peer-to-peer connection.

    Go to TiVo.com and search for peer-to-peer connection instructions, and use help on your PC for ICS.
