Summary: I bought this to allow my tivo to update through our wireless internet network. Like the person who commented below, I gave Verizon the boot after much frustration, and do not have an analogue phoneline anymore.
Do you HATE the phone company? This thing can help you stick it to 'em.

Summary: The last thing I needed my local phone company for was my TiVo. Although TiVo was the ONLY ONE WHO EVER USED THE PHONE, I still got outrageous bills. Anything over 15 miles is long distance? Are you kidding me, SBC? So I VOWED that this was it. No more. No more SBC.
Great for TIVO...11.g adapter (DWL-G122) does not work

Summary: I have a D-Link 11.g router. I needed an adapter for my TIVO. I bought and returned 5 different adapters before getting advice from TIVO on the ones to use. This was one supported. It worked instantly - no drivers, no nothing. I've not tested it for speed yet, but its getting 50% (good) signal.
Summary: The actual hardware works fine. I've so far tested it under Windows XP and Linux. The drivers, as others have stated, lack polish. Under Windows XP the supplied D-Link utility is useless -- it won't even run. However, you can set it up using the normal XP wireless tools.
Summary: When I first bought my TiVo (about a year ago), I totally hated that fact that I had this forty foot phone cord running from my bedroom to the next room where I had to split the phone connection. After about a month of that madness, TiVo announced the launch of their new Series 2 network dial-in.
Summary: I've got an old blue G3 mac that doesn't support Apple's Airport. I couldn't find any Mac compatible wireless cards other than Airport. The D-Link's USB adapter was the only wireless solution I could find. I bought this adapter a year ago and initally had problems with it.

Summary: I work as a PC technician for my local cable company's internet service and install these adapters daily for their customers... as well as trouble shoot problems for them. First off, regarding Mac users, you might as well forget it. They're supposed to work with MacOS X (10.2) but never have...
Summary: This is what you need to connect TIVO with an XP Wireless system. TIVO updates the device and connects to your home network flawlessly. All you do is select the home network that TIVO finds and type in your password (WEP).
Summary: I got this adapter for my Tivo to connect wirelessly to my home network. It works just fine. Note that Tivos are notoriously picky about which adapters will work. A previous reviewer suggested getting the DWL-G122, but I assure you it won't work.
