Software version upgrade needed

Welcome once again to the ongoing saga of the new TiVo box + 11g wireless setup.

This thread's episode: "The annoyances continue"

Recap. Purchased the 11g router, 11g adapters, and a new TiVo box.
Got the adapter working on the old TiVo box (3 years old My first ). It's happily updating itself without wires or dial-tone. HALLELUIAH !!!

Got the router working properly now too (the topic of a previous thread. Thanks again )

But..........

The new box doesn't recognize the adapter
I took a look at the software version, and DUH. It's 5.3..................

I've already connected to the service and rcvd a download.
Why didn't it update the software

This box it going to be in a location that does not have access to a phone line, so I don't want to be dragging miles of phone-line around the house waiting for the software fairy to visit.

Is there anything that can be done to move this upgrade process along?

I'd appreciate any info.
Thanks
T

It takes a few cals for it to to upgrade. Connect it to the phone and force a few calls until it says 'pending restart' if it doesn't work after a few, wait a day and try again.

YUP.
Requires patience.

(although immediate gratification would simply be far superior )
