Several weeks ago I had a lightning strike near my house. First thing I noticed was some dead Ethernet connections, which turned out to be by gigabit switch. This evening I decided to connect to my TiVo over the network and...the ethernet port's dead. Most likely the strike came in over the CATV line and took out the TiVo's connection. Oddly enough the second TiVo's just fine.

So, Weaknees lists a $60 USB > Ethernet adapter but they're out of stock. Can anyone recommend a compatible adapter they've used in a similar situation?

I may still have a USB Ethernet adapter which worked with a s2 unit. I don't know if it works with a s3. The issue is if tivo software still has the required drivers. Let me know if you want me to look. Whatever it costs to ship maybe half a pound.
If you would do that, I'd appreciate it very much!

For future reference, the StarTech USB2100 does NOT work. :(
