802.11g Linksys

I recently bought the Linksys 802.11g wireless router, a mobile adapter for my laptop, and the 802.11b USB adapter for Tivo.

After one very frustrating night of setup, i finally got it to work, with a catch...I had to DL the latest firmware update for the router which would allow it to run as "b" only

The kind, patient, Tivo rep on the other end of the Technical Service call explained that Tivo does not yet support a network connection to a 'mixed' (b & g) network, and it would only work on a "b only" network.

Does anyone have any idea when this might change? Do we think Tivo will ever update their firmware to support this?

Its kinda like running a G5 on OS9, if you take my meaning.

-Todd

Your software in TiVo should be updated to 4.0.1 from 4.0 any day now, if not already. This allows the 11.b adapters to connect to routers in "mixed mode."

The 4.01 software update that's in the process of being rolled out is supposed to help with this. There's a "priority list" which can be used to put your TiVo higher on the rollout.

Re: 802.11g Linksys

Linksys 54G will work fine if you use the proper adapter. The common linksys companion for Tivo is the WUSB11 Instant Wireless USB Network Adapter. This will not work on the Linksys G routers w/o software upgrade. You need the WUSB12 Wireless Compact USB Adapter. Once you plug this puppy in you will have no problem getting a signal in the status screen.

PM me if you have any questions. If you do a search for "WUSB12" (minus quotes) you will find numerous posts regarding this issue.

I've had problems with 802.11b clients not working when setting the WRT54g is set to "B only" (which makes no sense to me). All clients work when the WRT54g is set to "mixed". Unfortunately TiVo doesn't like this, so you'll have to wait for the 4.0.1 software. I got it a few days after requesting it.

I have my TiVo plugged into a WET11 anyway so this doesn't apply to me, but I thought it might be useful.

A friend of mine had this same problem. Since he had an XBox he also wanted to network at the same location/TV I suggested returning the USB adapter and going with either a USB dongle + separate switch or trying the Linksys Cable/DSL Router with USB and 3-Port Switch (BEFSRU31) with DHCP turned off. Then get a Linksys G-Bridge (WET54G) to tie the whole thing in with his G WAP upstairs. I imagine this should have worked as the TiVo wouldn't see the wireless, but have been moving cross country and haven't heard back from him since I left to confirm what he did. Still, thought I'd throw it out for consideration.

This isn't exactly right...I am running the 54g router, a g laptop card and the WUSB11 adapter.

The WUSB11 was the last thing added to the "chain" (bought it last weekend at Best Buy) and it installed/works without a problem...no software installation required.

Perhaps I just got lucky.

The WUSB11 is a USB wireless (802.11b) adapter that plugs into the back of your Tivo. I use a Linksys WRTG54 router and haven't had any problems.
