Do you need the Tivo wireless adaptor? Surely you could buy some other adapter that fits into the ethernet port?

These are USB adapters. They don't fit in an ethernet port.

Basically you need one with the same chip set. There's a list on tivo dot com at http://support.tivo.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/405#HDTiVocompatiblewirelessadapters

Note there are now two TiVo-brand adapters, the original 802.11G and the newer high-speed N.

I used to use a "powerline" adapter. Worked OK with the series2, but the premier has been a headache all the way around.

The description says it has an ethernet port. MyLogitech powerline works great with Apple TV. Should work with this.

I use a powerline adapter with my Tivo premiere. It works just fine. Yes, it has an ethernet port.

You can use many universal wifi/ ethernet bridge. I am using CAT5 cable to connect the Yamaha WiFi bridge (it has an Ethernet port). NetGear has a universal bridge that probably works just as well.

Use HomePlug AV ("200Mb/s") powerline-Ethernet adapters to connect your TiVo to your router/gateway/LAN.

Rule of thumb for minimally frustrating home connectivity: Use HomePlug AV, rather than Wi-Fi, whenever you can. In other words, for stationary devices, use HomePlug AV. Use Wi-Fi for mobile devices. The TiVo DVR is decidedly stationary.
