802.11g capability......?

I would prefer to purchase the 802.11g usb adapters for my HMO. Has anyone heard when there will be a software update that wil support this? I already have Linksys route (WRT54G).

There's been no word on those -- but 802.11g wireless USB adapters are very new.

An alternative would be to use a ethernet USB adapter in combination with a 802.11g wireless ethernet bridge.

Of course, the USB ports on the TiVo are only running in USB 1.1 mode which has a maximum of 12 Mbps.

I'm still hoping TiVo enables the faster USB 2.0 speeds for the units that have the USB 2.0 hardware.

TiVoBji has dropped the hint that the USB 2.0 support is in testing. Don't know which adapters it will work with though.

Thanks for the info.

Were any wired adapters mentioned at all? Would you have a link to that thread?

Edit: Found it here .

If you do a search for the user name of TiVoBji they should show up. He usually lurks and doesn't post much.

802.11g?

I have a series 2 tivo (actually i have 2 of them) with home media option (using an imac with airport extreme station).

So will i ever have the capability to go up to 802.11g when they figure out the adapter? Or is my tivo only usb 1.1? If so, which tivo models will offer the hardware necessary to utilize 802.11g in the future?

Thanks!

You could go to 802.11g today by combining an 802.11g to ethernet "bridge" and a ethernet to USB adapter (I did something similar with an 802.11b "bridge" before wireless support was available).

Any TiVo model where the TiVo Service Number (TSN) begins with a "2" has USB 2.0 hardware. However, the USB drivers that are installed are only doing USB 1.1
