HMO problems with Toshiba Series 2 and D-link usb wireless adapter.
I recently purchased a Toshiba Series 2 tivo unit. I read about the networking option on the tivo website and picked up a usb wireless adapter that they recommended. I got the D-Link DWL-122 usb adapter. I picked this model, because my router/access point is a D-link as well, DI-624.
I plugged in the usb adapter and it detected it on the Tivo and said it needed to update the drivers.
I went through that and then started to setup the wireless portion entering in the SSID, WEP code, encryption level. It said it found the network but warned that the password might be incorrect I made sure I put in the right one.
On the Tivo settings page for Phone & Network, it shows my Wireless access point name and gives a signal strength. So, I figured okay it sees the access point and can communicate with it.
I added in the mac address of the usb adapter into my router, as I use mac filtering to lock it down.
On the Tivo, I then went through the TCP/IP settings and choose obtain ip address automatically. I didn't enter in anything for the DHCP client. It then tries to check the settings and it says that it cannot find the dhcp server.
I then tried to enter in the ip stuff myself. I gave it an ip address, assigned it on the router, set up the netmask, entered in the dns, gateway info. It then tries to check and comes up with that it cannot find the router.
I don't know what to try next. It should work, but its driving me nuts.
