Special Note for TIVO
Certain models of the TIVO series2 DVR do not have a wired ethernet connection and require the purchase of a wired USB adapter. This adapter is available for purchase at the TIVO website.
Personal Network Routers
To better accommodate the varied devices students connect to the wired (Ethernet) network in residence halls (i.e. personal computers, gaming consoles, voice-over-Internet devices, and TiVo), ITS has approved the use of personal network routers in student rooms (sometimes called "broadband routers or "cable/DSL routers"). Routers must not have wireless capability (i.e. Apple Airports are not allowed) because wireless devices disrupt the SU network (wired and wireless). Further information is available on the router Web page.
