    Has anyone tried streaming with a wireless USB adapter plugged in their mini? I moved the furniture around the room and now the ethernet cable is running in plain sight. Would really like to replace it with a wireless solution. Router is in same room so the signal is very strong (and I have 500mb service so lots of available data)

    Willing to consider a tivo branded solution (if there is one) or a 3rd party/generic adapter (expect to pay ~$20)

    Thanks.

    Skip the USB and get a wireless bridge with Ethernet connectivity.

    Only works with a "A95" Mini VOX or Mini LUX running TE4, right?

    I have one of these and it worked great on my previous Comcast gateway and since I got the new one for whatever reason it randomly drops the signal now. But still better than TE4 and that USB WiFi junk.

    Reset it to defaults and configure it again, I had to do that when I switched access points, even with the same credentials.
