    Ok, after being frustrated all day and having looked at probably a thousand post here, I decided to ask for help.

    My situation:

    I have a Series 2 - 80 Hour Box with the Netgear FA120 Wired network adapter. I use a Linksys WRT54G Wireless-G Router, but only use the wireless with my laptop. I have configured everything over and over, but always get the "Your network adapter has not been set up for use with the DVR. (N08)".

    I can connect to the server fine using TiVo Desktop and can transfer shows etc.

    Seeing as I know nobody in this town with a phone line (college town), is there anyway I could setup something on my computer, such as a proxy or anything, that would allow me to escape this guided setup torture?

    So you have a wired adapter from the tivo to your router? Have you tried the ,#401 trick?

    On some TiVo units guided setup only works with phone line. Once complete then the network can be added.
