Your reply is the suck. The poster clearly stated Tivo2 which anyone with 2 brain cells to rub together would figure means Series 2.ciper said:Your post is the suck. We need more details! Specifically what model of Tivo you have.
FWIW, the original post was edited after cipers comment, I'm not saying ciper put it the nicest way, but there is the possibility the OP had left all the model info out of the original post.jtown said:Your reply is the suck.

Diane, that was very nice, but I don't really know what that means.dianebrat said:Betts,
The USB200M is a *wired* ethernet adapter, not wireless
If you have broadband, you really *should* have a router/firewall between the broadband modem and your house network, and you would just have a contractor install an RJ45 network cable from the modem/router to the living room and connect there.
RJ45 is the name of the connector on the end of the Network wire. It looks like an over sized telephone connector. I am guessing you connect your computer to your broadband modem with a wire using RJ45 connectors (you might also be connected using a USB connection). You would need to be able to run a network wire (also called CAT 5 or 6 wire) from your broadband modem to your TiVo, if you were going to hard wire your TiVo so it could use your broadband to get updates.You mean I have to have someone come in and put in the rj45? I can't do that myself?
Would you like me to cite sources? If you don't know the definition perhaps you should reserve judgment.ciper said:seems members of TCF haven't been on the internet long enough to know that "teh suck" is common slang/meme meaning not very good. The opposite would be "teh pwn"
You would be surprised at how inexpensive and professionally done new wired network jacks can be. (that 2 floors thing wouldn't even phase most guys nowadays) It's gotten so that it's very common for the "low voltage" wiring guys to do this work and have it look fantastic.betts4 said:Thank you for the help. It does make more sense. I didn't mention that the tivo is on one floor and the pc on another. I am going to look into some wireless stuff.
You can certainly feel free to do it yourself should you desire. Not everyone wants to do it themselves, some of us don't mind hiring a pro.alxbrewer said:You mean I have to have someone come in and put in the rj45? I can't do that myself?
Bravo! Good links! Our newbies are our strength! And what is clear to one person is totally confusing to another.

What's that saying about one rotten apple?
Wired or wireless, I've had good success with the Linksys Wireless G Router for Broadband connections, WRT54G
