Looks like they are back in stock on Tivo.com ...
Why? Or I should ask, how is that?
I just got mine today and love this adapter so far. I had to remember what my network WEP code was, but once I did the connection setup went very smooth. I had been using a Microsoft Wireless Game adapter on my Tivo but needed it for the XBox 360. So I moved the Tivo to another TV and got the Tivo brand wireless adapter. I must say it is a very stylish wireless adapter.
Also appears to be in stock on Amazon with free shipping.
Good question! I assumed it was because nobody has written Windows drivers. Obviously they created Linux drivcers (but are not making them available). Or maybe there is some other technical reason.
I just plugged mine into my XP machine for the heck of it. It detects a "Remote Download Wireless Adapter" and then prompts for a driver disk.
I know this a very old thread but, since I just wire my Series 3 directly to my router and was able to unplug the Tivo network adapter. I still would love to use this adapter on another device.
To work on anything other than a Tivo, you would need drivers for the device to be able to work. Those drivers would have to be specific to the operating system the Tivo adapter is connected to, Windows, MAC, Linux, etc. There are no functioning drivers available. If you no longer need the Tivo adapter, you best bet is to sell it.
