Allow WPA Encryption & Wireless G/N

A few monhts ago, I wanted to upgrade my router (Wireless B) from WEP to WPA. I was informed that my Tivo S2 will only handle WEP--not WPA. And definitely won't deal with any wireless OTHER than B.

Does anyone have anything that will alllow me to change this? And/or will this be changed in 7.2? I still have 7.1.

The only way to get what you want is a wireless bridge. You use a wired ethernet adapter on the Tivo, and connect that to the bridge. Then you can have whatever wireless stuff the bridge can do. It costs more, but that's about the only way you're going to get it. Tivo uses Linux and can only access network adapters that have Linux drivers. If you want to be able to use more devices, start pestering hardware makers for Linux drivers.

I doubt it will change significantly in the near future. The makers of wireless G hardware just won't make drivers for Linux and won't release the specs so anyone else can either.
