This works a lot better than the prior USB version, I can now stream HD Netflix movies on my TiVo HD for example whereas before I had trouble doing that because the USB version wifi adapter was so slow!

This doesn't plug into the USB on your TiVo but rather the ethernet port. It also requires AC power as well.

My only complaint is that this is too expensive.

If you plan to watch streaming content such as Netflix with your TiVo, I would recommend this device. However, if you only need it for the standard TiVo updates and network connectivity, the much cheaper USB version really works just fine. Even for scheduled downloads the USB version works fine because it does that in the background so the speed doesn't matter in that case.

When you understand what this thing really does, it becomes clear that it's an amazing device. Yes, you need to plug it into power, but that's only because it has a built-in microprocessor and internal web-based setup guide and those capabilities require power. This isn't a "dumb," USB-based adapter. It's much more powerful, and it serves as a stand-alone ethernet bridge.

As I mentioned, the basic idea is that this device is nothing more than a wireless-to-ethernet bridge. By enabling it and hooking it to your TiVo's ethernet port, your TiVo simply thinks it's hooked to a hard-wired ethernet connection. The beauty is that it requires no changes to your TiVo configuration. The adapter is detected automatically.

Ok, so it's a wireless-to-ethernet bridge, like many others available. What makes this one different? First, it's FAST, and it gets great reception, and it also works in the 5 GHz band, which is less crowded than the typical 2.4 Ghz band. If you have an N-standard wireless router (or dual-band router) such as the Linksys WRT610, you can fully utilize the power of this adapter. I've tried it using both old-fashioned WEP encryption, as well as the WPA2-AES mode (which is the Draft-N standard encryption protocol). I EASILY get 25 Mbit/sec data rates from across the house and through walls from my Linksys 5 Ghz N router.

Simply put, if you set this up properly and don't get full-speed streaming via Netflix through your TiVo HD, it's due to excessive Netflix server loading (or limits to your home internet service) and not a speed bottleneck in this adapter. Or, your adapter may simply be too far from your router, but I find this adapter to work very well at longer distances.

In the year 2011, a wireless device really shouldn't be this difficult to set up. My router doesn't have a WPS button, so I had to do a manual setup by plugging it into my home computer -- apparently TiVo doesn't have software built in to talk to the adapter. While theoretically the adapter should be compatible with my WPA2 security settings, I couldn't get it to recognize my connection. I called TiVo tech support, and they admitted that the adapter doesn't always work with WPA or WPA2 security, and suggested I downgrade my security settings to make my router compatible with the adapter.
I had to downgrade my router security to WEP hex (not ASCII, because the adapter isn't compatible with that setting). Only then was I able to get the adapter to work, and then I had to change all the other wireless devices in the house to connect to the new WEP settings on my router.
Now that it is finally set up, the adapter does seem to work well with my TiVo Premiere. I haven't tried any streaming movies yet, but so far the response time is comparable to when I had a wired internet connection.
I was just really surprised that my new Tivo Premiere doesn't have software built in to make the setup process easier -- the steps really should have been 1) plug in adapter, 2) enter password into Tivo, 3) enjoy working adapter.
Also not sure why I have never had an issue getting various devices to work with my WPA2 security (various computers, Wii, iPod Touch, etc.), but the TiVo adapter can't recognize it. Pretty lame. Now I have an unintelligible set of four hex passwords to remember instead of just one. Whiskey Tango, TiVo.

TiVo's new wireless N adapter is an interesting concept. It is a wireless adapter, however, it appears on your network as a wired adapter. Setting up the device is also unusual. You have 2 options. If your router supports it, you can connect via single push of a button, otherwise, you need to connect the adapter to a PC via the LAN port and access the set up through the address we are all familiar with. Using option 2 is not difficult, and once in the browser you have 2 options, automatically scan for a network or manual setup. Because I do not broadcastt SSID, I utilized manual setup. It supports WPA2 security as well so no issues there. Now, where the issues come in. If, for whatever reason, the adapter loses connectivity with your router, and you live in an area, where others are broadcasting their SSIDs, the adapter wll try to connect to one of those instead of te network selected as part of the original setup. This is also the case for the TiVo G Adapters. Unfortunately unlike the Old TiVo adapters, you cannot simply go into settings and re-attach to your network. With this device (N Adapter) you need to unplug it from your TiVo box, back into your PC and run setup again to register it on your network. This is a pain, from a convnience perspective, and could pose challenging to those not technically inclined. The performance of the adapter is excellent when working as designed. I am still tinkering to determine how to prevent the above events described from occurring.
