I live in a dorm and have a single ethernet drop. There is no wireless network in the building, nor does my computer have a wireless card, so I'm looking at a wired HMO setup - from reading this thread, it looks like that's the best way to go anway .
Is there a wired equivalent to a bridge access point?
Is there any way to wire the TiVo directly to the ethernet-connected computer?
One way you could get around this is to have two network cards in one machine. Since I use DHCP on my Tivo at home, I don't know if you can use a static ip address and gateway. If so, you could use your PC as a gateway to your campus network. I know Windows XP has the ability to share a Internet connection with other devices. I once did this the hard way with Windows NT around 4 years ago and got it to work.
