This adapter works great--no real problems hooking it up--I did have to go online to find my media key, which for some reason was not showing on messages and settings on the tivo. Not really a problem. Then, really just followed the directions. The reason I got the adapter was that I was getting a lot of interference on my phone line from the tivo. Many times when I would use the phone during the day, I would get those annoying fax type tones, which would run me off the phone, not good for getting my business done. Since hooking up the wireless adapter, I don't have that problem anymore. Wish I had done it a long time ago....more info
- great price
The Adapter works great with my new HD Tivo and was $30 cheaper than one I bought at Best Buy for my older Series 3. ...more info
- Tivo Wireless Adapter works great!
I decided I was tired of hooking up my TiVo to the phone line and ordered this (also got a Netgear wireless modem elsewhere). Set up the modem first then took less than a minute to hook this up and success! My TiVo gets updated all the time, no more annoying "your programming information will run out in X days..." messages. What took me so long?...more info
- Working great.
Very easy to set up and I haven't had any problems.
My wireless router and my TiVo are only 15 feet apart so I don't know how this product works in a long range. ...more info
Works great. Saved me from the long phone cord I had to run all the way to the tv....more info
- TiVo wireless adaptor
Quick to ship and arrive, price better than from TiVo. Only annoyance is that TiVo requires a specialized wireless G USB adaptor....more info
- Totally satisfied
This worked right out of the box and created a wireless connection for Tivo HD as well as a network for my computers. It permits me to transfer programs to my PC computers (via Tivo's Desktop 2.7 software) and watch them there if I don't want to tie up the family TV set in the living room. Transfer speed is roughly matched to the broadcast transmission itself, so you have to wait for your program to show up entirely at the networked computer....more info
- Tivo adapter
Great product and it was the cheapest I could find it online including Ebay...Supersaver (free) shipping helped as well....more info
- could not have been a better all around experience for an online purchase!
First off... Amazon was simply awesome sending me this item so quickly (2 DAYS!!!) even though it was on super savings discount (free) shipping.
I needed this item since I recently upgraded my wireless router from a 802.11b to a 802.11n and my old (tivo qualified) usb wi-fi adapter would not work on a WPA encrypted network... so lame. I had forgotten how particular Tivo is with which adapters it will work and support... so I finally went to their site to see what it would cost to get my Tivo r2 back on the network. This little item cost nearly twice as much than the one I purchased through Amazon , but it's what I needed. When I saw that Amazon had this item for this price, I immediately purchased it. This adapter will also work for the HD tivo models, r3, which I plan to upgrade to in the near future.
Once I got it... the toughest part was getting the adapter out of the original package. btw, the wireless router is D-Links 655 (also purchased through Amazon), which I highly recommend.
- Tivo AG0100 Wireless G works great!
So nice to not have to hard wire the Tivo box to the phone line. I had the wireless adapter out of the box, hooked up and working in a matter of minutes. Very simple to use!
I would highly recommmend this product....more info
- TIVO Wireless Adapter
This wireless adapter works extremely well. I have used Linksys adapter with my TIVO, but the connectivity was poor and inconsistent. This device if very effective and looks nice! ...more info
- TIVO Wireless adapter
I was dragging a 75 ft telephone cord up to my TIVO every 10 days or so. Most of the time it could not make a connection. If it did make a connection, it failed to complete download. It was ridiculous.It would call 5-6-7 times and I had to have this cord laying around until it was successful. It took 10 minutes to hook up the adapter to my wireless DSL upstairs. Now, I don't ever think about it. What took me so long!!!! ...more info
- Simple Setup, Never use dial up again
A great addition to TiVo - never have to sting a telephone cord again to download info. If you have more than one Tivo, the wireless devices create a TiVo network of sorts (pull a show from one TiVo to the other).
- A Tivo Series 3 Must
When we purchased the Series 3 Tivo I had to upgrade the wireless adapter from the one I had used with a Series 2 Tivo. Installation was a snap and it has worked flawlessly. It is absolutly essential in order to view Netflix videos as easy as it is to watch an old TIVO recording. Networking to a computer it makes it possible to transfer programs between TIVO units, transfer programs to your computer, and to publish photos and music from you computer to your TV. ...more info
- It works
I was looking for a way to connect to tivo without using a phone line. Tivo does not support phone service over Cable so I needed to invest in another way to connect. This is easy to hook up and works well. Amazon had the best price I could find....more info
- When the path of least resistance is good
My Series 2 TiVo has a Netgear USB 802.11b network adapter plugged into it. It has always worked fine, though it looks nothing like the TiVo and has an awkward little antenna on top.
The AG0100 Wireless G, however, costs less than the Netgear item did four years ago (no surprise there), but more importantly works seamlessly with my TiVo HD. This device opens up like a clamshell-style cell phone, and quietly becomes part of the "TiVo" zone.
TiVo TCD652160 HD Digital Video Recorder
The two indicator lights were actually useful with my first HD, which had a defect related to its hard drive. Sometimes TiVo would hang up in the process of downloading network content; when this happened, one of the lights would remain off, indicating that it was time to unplug and reboot. (The replacement TiVo is working fine.)
Even though the 802.11b adapter is working fine on my older TiVo, I'm considering replacing it with the AG0100--it's the last slower-speed device on my network. At this price, it's worth considering....more info
- great product
this is a great product! I am very glad I bought it here rather than tivo.com, it saved me $$$...
it was easy to set up and didn't take long for tivo to update with it...we have not set up any of the extra features, but when we have time we will. for now, not using the phone line is all we were concerned with (we switched to Vonage)....more info
- Great Wireless Adapter
I wasn't sure what to expect when I bought this adapter. I was thankful to see that it supported my long WPA2 passphrase. I was also pleseantly surprised to see how well-made the device is. The adapter has very sturdy construction. I also like the fact that the adapter isn't too large or bulky. It hides nicely behind a vase on our entertainment center. The wireless adapter is also amazing. It consistently maintains an excellent connection to my wireless adapter and has detected more networks than any of the other wireless devices in my house. All in all a great purchase....more info
I have purchased three TiVo adapters over the last few years, and the product simply works as promised. Plug it in and works the first time, and all three continue to work flawlessly. Absolutely perfect....more info
- Easy setup and great extra features
The Tivo Wireless adapter enables your Tivo to connect to your home network and update program listings via the internet. Once enabled you also get the extra Tivo features such as Amazon movie downloads and for the series 3: Netflix and Youtube.
Setup was easy. Just plug it in and the Tivo recognizes it. Enter your home network password/access-key and you are ready to go!
My only wish would be that Tivo would allow any USB wireless adapter to work with the Tivo box rather than have to use a Tivo adapter....more info
- Tivo adapter! 5 stars
I dont have to stay connected to a phone line, cutting the need for a phone line in my house. It was also really easy to set up, just follow the tivo's step by step directions....more info
- Network Cable Disconnected Message With HD Tivo
I ordered this to replace an older one that I thought had stopped working. I believe these work fine with the older series 2 Tivos but the HD Tivo seems to have a problem with the wireless. When we first got our HD box, we got a "Network Cable Disconnected" error so we exchanged it for a new one. That one worked for a while but has recently been getting the same message. We have restarted it several times with only spotty results. I don't think it's the adapter. Our old box connects immediately with both adapters. If you are thinking about Tivo HD with wireless be warned. I don't know if it's the physical USB port on the unit but there is something going on that prevents the HD box from reliably connecting....more info
- Works great for me!
To start with it was $20 less than anyone else. I had very little problem with installing it and has been working fine and have had no problems after installation.
I have been using my netgear wireless adapter for the last couple of years with some problems here and there. I finally caved in and bought one of these since the price is now under $40.
Worked like a charm. Setup and ready to go in 20 minutes or less.
I tried getting this adapter to work on my own for a month and half. Every once in awhile it would work. But, very rarely. Unfortunately, there are very few settings you can access in TIVO to troubleshoot any problems. It would also fail at different steps so I think I received every error message TIVO has. I finally called TIVO support. The only thing they knew to try was turn the TIVO on and off (like I had not tried that a 100 times already). They did say they were aware of alot of customers getting N17 error and they had not been able to fix on their end. They said since it had been more than 30 days since I received the device, I would need to buy another one and they suggested not buying a TIVO adapter this time.
On a positive note, I called and explained to Amazon that I could not get the thing to work. Since it was a gift, they were having trouble finding the original order. But, stayed at it until they did. They then said they would send me another unit. THANKS Amazon! Hopefully, this one works better....more info
- Adaptor Works as Describedvog
Product worked as described. It is strange how persnickety the TiVo is about adaptors. You try an unsupported one and it will not work AT ALL. You use this one and it works like a charm. ...more info
- Works Great!!
Bought this as a gift for a friend and he's ecstatic at how well it works!!!...more info
