Hi guys, I have this problem on my TiVo...the wifi adapter can't pick up my home network but it has always been able to before. It has just happened yesterday. Nothing has changed. It just said my schedules and Tivo features will be turned off, so please connect to the TiVo service. The signal on the TiVo is none, but all my other wifi devices (eg: PC, Phone etc) can all connect. The range between wifi router and Tivo is about 15 meters, but like I said before it always use to be able to connect until yesterday.

Anyone with help would be appreciated.

I had that with my Toshiba, it would lose connection.  When it does, restarting the modem normally works

First thing I would do it try restarting each device. Modem first, then if that doesn't work try re-programming the wifi network on the TiVo, then you could try powering off the TiVo and restarting. My bet is a simple modem reset will fix it.
