Hello, I have a rookie question. My wife and I have an 80 hour TiVo (it's so nice...) and we sometimes want to watch something in another room on one of our computers. We have it set up on a wireless network now, but wanted to see if it was worth it to hook it up to the wired network. Here's all the details I can think of...

TiVo 80 hour is hooked up in the entertainment center with our router.
USB to Ethernet Network Adapter from Weaknees (will buy if it's worth it).
Current wireless speeds = @180kbps
Software version 7.2

I've heard that the drivers for TiVo are still USB 1.1. Any way I can get updated drivers for this?

If you need more details, let me know... I just want to find out if it would be worth the trouble to go through all the work. Thank you in advance! :cool:

My TiVo # starts with a 540... it's less than a year old.

So if the bottleneck is coming out of the TiVo, then hooking it up to the router with a CAT5 cable will increase the speed that is sent to the laptop upstairs on a wireless connection? I usually get phenominal speeds between the laptop and router.
