Hi there. This is my third Tivo and I've always been able to set them up myself easily. Until now. I'm trying to set up my new Bolt. You can tell by my question that I'm not a very technical person at all :) It didn't work wirelessly (NO2 error), even though my smart tv does and my tivo premiere did for 11 years.
I'm going to try ethernet instead. My router has a few openings. Which one do I plug my ethernet into?
Thanks

I can get the model number and a picture tomorrow. I have to go outside and downstairs to get to it. Are you saying any of the 4 ports? Are they all for the same thing? Thanks for answering without all the details. I am going crazy without tivo!
Typically and absent one of the ports being labelled something different, yes.

Thank you. I'll try that. Would using ethernet instead of wireless mean I would get a stronger signal? Wireless was usually only around 40% on old tivo. Maybe that was the problem?
Wired definitely can be preferable over wireless, especially if both options are equally available to you, and can produce a stronger and faster connection, depending on your setup. Wireless can present extra issues over wired, including because at least some of the wireless adapters that TiVo has used in its boxes seem not to perform as well as one might like. E.g. I was having issues every now-and-again with my Roamio box, in maintaining its wireless connection and speed--when I connected that TiVo box by ethernet to a wireless bridge and then that wireless bridge via wireless to my router, much of those issues went away. Having said that, my Bolt box connects to the router via wireless with little issue.
