Arrow How to exit Guided Setup?

I have a problem with my internal modem on my series 2 tivo DVR 2F16 140 model Service number. I have spoke with tech support and they say I need to trade it in. If I can get out of guided setup I have a usb adapter that works to connect to my wireless network. Any help on getting out of setup or getting a land line to work via external modem.

Any help would be appreciated.

The only way to get out of guided setup is to finish it.

However, during guided set up you come to a page that asks if you need to use a dial prefix. Choose yes then enter ,#401 -You'll probably need to unplug the Tivo and start over.

You will need a wired adapter for that to work, unless you previously had wireless working fine.

Otherwise you could give serial PPP a try.
