And don't forget the AirNet board for the series 1



Let me clarify:

To the best of my knowledge, there are no drivers for wireless devices in the current Tivo series 2 software. If you put a wired device and a bridge or an AP in client mode, then sure, but that's not a wireless device on the Tivo, that's a wireless bridge to a LAN. Completely different that what he's talking about, which is a USB->802.11b dongle type thing.

And Airnet must be hacked in. You have to add the drivers for it, they're not there already. Series 2's are still protected, you can't add software to them currently, so you can't add drivers for wireless USB adapters. See?
