Yesterday I came across a couple of posts stating that TiVo is now supporting 802.11g adapters. A quick check revealed that the Supported Wireless Adapaters page at TiVo support now shows 2 G-adapters: the D-Link DWL-G120 and the NetGear WG111. Both require version 7.1a of the TiVo software (i.e. the software on your TiVo). Monitor the supported adapters pages for correct versions of these adapters.
I checked, and BestBuy has a deal on the NetGear WG111: the in-store price is $59.99, with a total of $40 of mail-in rebates. Check your stores for the details…
Of course I rushed out and grabbed one, just to test this out. Unfortunately I didn’t have a lot of time last night, and a simple substitute of one wireless adapter for another doesn’t quite work. I’ll have to play around with it a little more tonight!
Several people on the tivocommunity.com forum (including TivoBill) report that there is little or no speed increase when using 802.11g – yet. This may be resolved in future versions.
