    Well Last night, I decided to just stop trying to use the TIVO Wireless N Adapter.

    Every couple of weeks it would drop the connection to the network. I think it was related when the IP Lease Expired. I had set it to a static IP Address to try to avoid any issues.

    Without fail every 2 weeks it would crap out and the TIVO would get DNS / GAteware errors. The Box could not connect to the TIVO Service anymore.

    In the end, I decided to take out the TIVO Wireless N Adapter and use a Dlink DAP-1522 Wireless Bridge. Haven't had any issues since.

    Just posting my own personal experiience with the Wirelss Adapter. Everyones milage may vary.

    Already had my 1st Wireless N adapter outage. Power cycled router, adapter, etc. to fix. If this annoyance continues it's wireless bridge or better yet MOCA for me.

    what static ip address are you using? I have the non tivo n bridge and setting the tivo ip one above or below what the static ip works for me.

    The adpater had X.X.X.130 and the TIVO had X.X.X.131

    Worked when the adapter could keep a lock on the Network.

    I have had DAP 1522 for my other TIVO's and had never had issues for 2 years.

    I have 2 tivo units, both with wireless N adapters. One would always do the same thing you described, the other one however worked just fine.

    I recently switched to MOCA and could not be happier. I highly suggest going that route.

    You should have kept using the DAP1522 units. They cost around the same as the TiVo wireless N adapters now and should even be faster.(plus you can connect other devices to the DAP1522) I know with my DAP1522 units, I can get identical speeds from my TiVos as when they are connected to my wired portion of my network.

    You are right I should have just kept to the DAP 1522. NEver had a problem. Been able to push I think around 50 MB/s over Wireless N 5 GHZ on them.

    I just though to give the TIVO Wirelss N Adapter a spin. Nope. Fail.
