    I'm trying to connect my TiVo to my PC via USB200M----ETHERNET CABLES----5 PORT SWITCH, the TiVo recognizes the adapter but not my network. I don't have broadband internet and no router, i have static ip address' between the two as so..
    PC ---------------------------------------- TiVo
    ip add-----192.168.0.1 ------------------------------192.168.0.2
    subnet----255.255.255.0 --------------------------- 255.255.255.0
    gateway--192.168.0.2 --------------------------- 192.168.0.1

    Have also tried direct connect using a crossover cable with same settings, still didn't work.

    All i want to do is transfer movies from the TiVo to my PC. I have a series 2 with latest software and TiVo Desktop on my PC, do i have to have a router or am i doing something wrong.

    Posting the same question in multiple forums, then resorting to verbal attacks when someone corrects you is definitely not the way to get help on this forum.

    can you ping the ip address of the pc from the pc?
    can you ping the ip address of the tivo from the pc?

    do yourself a favor and get a hub instead of using a crossover cable.
    How did you install the networking on the tivo in detail?

    I don't want to hijack the thread or anything but I have a somewhat related question and I promise not to attack anyone...


    I currently have a Linksys wireless router and two series 2 TiVo's in the house both on wireless adapters. The router is G rated but one of the TiVo's still has a B adapter. I want to speed up transfer times but don't want to spend the $50 on a TiVo G adapter so I was just going to run a cable. I have a NETGEAR FA101 adapter and was going to plug that into the TiVo then the cable from that to my router....
    My question is two fold... Can I use a Cat 6 cable or does it have to be a 5 or 5E...

    and secondly, what kind of cable do I want, a Patch or a Crossover cable???

    Most newer routers can use either a patch or crossover and just make the switch internally, but if you want to be sure get a patch cable and use 5 or 5E for the cable.

    So get a 5E rather than a 6?

    Thanks for the help. I plugged my FA101 into my TiVo, ran the 5e cable up the wall, through the ceiling and to my router and BAM, worked like a charm, no nonsense and I'm now copying from the bedroom TiVo (on a 11G wireless adapter) to the living room TiVo (now wired to the router with the Cat 5e cable I just installed) at a 1 to 1 ratio. It transfers both directions at the 1:1 ratio instead of the 3:1 it used to take... I Love it.
