    How can I retrieve the MAC of my Tivo's USB card

    I have the Linksys 200M attached to my HDVR2.

    My Netgear automatically assigns IP addresses; when I go to the 'attached devices' page, it only shows my PC.

    The Tivo, however, has been assigned 192.168.0.10. When I go into Hyperterm, I can get into the Tivo - so it is on the network.

    Since it doesn't show up (the Tivo), I can't get the MAC address to reserve it under DHCP with the .10 address.

    I'm tired, I'm stupid, but my old Linksys let me check this sort of stuff.

    What am I missing and how can I solve this issue?

    First, from the tivo bash, type ifconfig. the HWaddr is the mac address. it is probably somewhere on the adapter itself.

    Second, if you are running actual HDVR2 software, a DHCP client is not included and you have most likely statically assigned the IP. In that case, you don't need to do anything to your router.

    Its also in the settings>phone&network screen of the TiVo.
    (might also be on the system Info screen, but didn't check)
