My knowlege of dongles has always had them pertaining to software security. Did not know they also had some new meaning...sorry.

We used dongles back on my 1st multi-user workstation back in 1983, but their purpose was to stop unauthorized use of the computer. Much as the Tivo folks have been talking about a dongle being used a means of encryption security.

Thanks to you for writing back, also.

Dongles are commonly in use with embroidery software used by modern sewing machines.

By the way, the urban myth about the association between "dongle" and "Don Gall" is untrue. It's a good story though...

Generic PCI NIC: $0.99 (after MicroCenter rebate)
Netgear FA120 USB 2.0 ethernet adapter: $24 (open box)
50' crossover cat5e cable: $15
TiVo automatically detecting the new connection and properly configuring itself: Priceless

As it turns out, the only option my campus network would permit for creating a second network connection was to drop a second NIC into the already-connected computer and share its connection. Not ideal, but still pretty cheap.
The ridiculous part: because I have a single drop, located in my living room, I am currently running 50' of cat6 from the drop in the living room to the computer in the office, and then 50' of cat5e from the computer to the TiVo, back in the living room. All this because I can't put in a switch and I can't drill holes in the wall (which would allow use of 15' cables). But hey, it's a free apartment, can't complain too much

Thanks for the advice on getting wired!

Simone
