Its been reported that the version number for the piece of equipment is either on the box or under the velcro strip attached to the unit.

The sad part about the Linksys version numbers is that they are NOT on the box. You have to get the little beast home before you aer working on upgrading your software for the Tivo box. I'm assuming that this is a driver issue. But I'm having a hard time understanding why it will take "up to five business days" to download a driver.

MtrRef, we are updating requests more frequently due to the holidays -- twice a day during business days. If it's taken more than 24 hours for you to get the update, please let me know your 15 digit TiVo Service Number and I will expedite. We are working to automate the process.

Best regards,
Stephen

I'd rather know before I buy the adapter.

What options are available for configuring the wireless network?

I have a Linksys wireless-g router. I don't broadcast my network ID, and use WEP encryption. Will the TiVo configuration options allow me to set this all up?

Maybe I should be investigating using a hub and wireless adapter instead. So many options...

I received the same message as yannb this week. If I were at home, I would quote the message, but it essentially said that the service update I received "added support for some wireless 802.11g devices". It didn't state which devices, but said to visit "<tivo-home-page>/adapters" (sorry, this is my first post and it won't allow my to post a link) to see which new devices were supported. However, I don't see any change at that page at all, and, as far as I can tell, none of the listed devices support 802.11g. Does anyone out there know anything else? Any TiVo folks listening?

I just bought an 802.11b router, since it allows me to use my laptop and my TiVo without having to run a new phone line for the TiVo. I'm still in the 30 day return period, and would like to go with 802.11g if possible, but the window is shrinking every day...

I have not received the message but I wish it would I have a WUSB54G adapter sitting here waiting for it's new home, everything else in my house is either on 54g already or wired at 100. Tivo is currently on an older Netgear 11b adapter and needs to get off of it. :)

I have the Toshiba unit, with a Linksys wrt54g router and the wusb54g adapter. I saw a couple of questions regarding compatibility with the adaptor, but no reply. Will that adaptor work? or do I need to get another? When I go through setup, there is no reference or place to work on network settings. Only Phone settings...Is this because I have an adaptor that isn't recognized or because the software of the Toshiba needs to be updated? Sorry if these are inappropriate questions here. I have not used a forum in many years.

At present no 802.11g USB adapter is supported. A list of the supported adapters can be found at http://www.tivo.com/adapters -- The router you have will work with one of the supported 802.11b adapters
