I've gotten over $200 in cash back from them at places I would have shopped anyway! Ebay, Staples, more! I put it at the top because they ROCK. Basically, you get a kickback from Ebates when buy.com or whoever pays them. Win-win. If you like throwing money away, don't use them!

BUFFALO WLI-TX4-G54HP and TiVo: Having trouble?

I have a WiFi bridge (connects a wired LAN client like a TiVo) to a WiFi network. I had trouble with my two TiVos seeing each other, the MAc seeing the TiVo on the Buffalo bridge, etc.

The WLI-TX4-G54HP is also known as a "High Power Wireless Ethernet Converter".

Long story short, I had firmware version 2.50.

Here's the link to 2.53

I know, what took me so long? Now TiVo transfer sees the TiVo as soon as it loads.

Other people have had trouble too with this bridge passing certain kinds of network traffic, like from DirectTV, etc. Connecting to the TiVo service and downloading shows never was a problem.
