I have a wireless router, a linksys wrt54g, connected to my cable modem running my local lan, on the 2nd floor of my house, in a room dedicated to being a home office. All is fine with that, I even get reception out at the pool in the summertime using the variety of cards and builtin wireless on the several laptops that my family and friends and I have. The router also has 4 ethernet ports that I have connected to various desktop and laptop units in the previously mentioned office.
On the main floor of the house, I have two tivo units (in the same room). One of this is connected to the network by a tivo usb to wireless adapter. Now, I could connect the 2nd tivo to another usb to wireless adapter.
However, I would like to consider buying something else to connect said tivos to the network, since most of their network traffic will be tivo-to-tivo or tivo to internet, and not tivo to pc, and I'd like to minimize the traffic over the wireless.
I don't think there is a wireless router that has multiple usb ports. Or is there? How about one with both usb and ethernet connections, so I could plug a loptop into it and not use the laptops wireless card, as well as serving the tivos. If not that, is there some kind of router (a bridge perhaps) that will connect wirelessly and provoide ehternet and then with usb-to-ethernet adapters allow me to plug the several tivo units in? What kind of hardware should I be looking at, and a rough idea of price (e.g. at best buy or cdw or somewhere else someone might recommend)?
