I hope you're aware that WEP isn't all that secure. It's not hard to break it. It's better than nothing, but not by much.Jon1 said:Recently I set up a wireless network which includes TTG. My network is unsecured and I need to secure it ASAP. Can anyone explain how to do this? I am worried that once it's secure TiVo won't be able to access my network! I have a Netgear WGR614 router.
I have a Netgear wgt624, so probably about the same setup. Go to your router web page. You aren't really going on the Internet, you are just communicating directly to your router via your browser. This is an address specified in your ... user's manual. (Mine is http://192.168.0.1 and yours may be the same.) There you will find all the settings for your router, including wireless security. Info on how to implement WEP or WPA security is also found in the, you guessed it, user's manual.Jon1 said:So, how do you enable WEP? That's what I was trying to find out.
Anyone with the tools to break WEP will also have the tools to see all networks whether they have broadcast disabled or not. Download netstumbler and see for yourself.mshilling said:Just disable broadcast - this will avert 99.9% of people from causing harm. Its just as secure as WEP!
I disagree. The best option is to use a USB-Ethernet adapter (i.e. Netgear FA120) to a router supporting WDS and use WPA to secure WDS link. It is better for speed (less processing on Tivo) and security.megazone said:Well, 128-bit isn't hard to break, and 64-bit is a complete joke. I would use 128-bit as the best option (and, in fact, that is what I use).
The best security you could get right now with TiVo is:
* 128-bit WEP
* Turn off SSID broadcast
* Use MAC filtering on the router to limit the clients allowed to connect
With the added advantage of costing three to five times as much.will792 said:I disagree. The best option is to use a USB-Ethernet adapter (i.e. Netgear FA120) to a router supporting WDS and use WPA to secure WDS link. It is better for speed (less processing on Tivo) and security.

6.2 is the software unit for the DirecTV combo boxes. DirecTV has chosen not to enable any of the networking features on the DirecTiVos, so the information in this thread applies only to stand alone boxes.MrBluEyZz said:I don't see anyplace in my TIVO setup screens to configure the network setup.
Where is it located (I am running version 6.2)
Thanks in advance,
It depends. I already have Linksys WRT54G router next to Tivo as a WDS node for better wireless coverage so the only additional cost is USB-Ethernet adapter.Bsteenson said:With the added advantage of costing three to five times as much.
