A split home network

Real quick, why a 4-port router was needed.

  1. Red: Upstream link to ISP
  2. Grey: WiFi
  3. Blue: Entertainment stack
  4. Green: General Ethernet

The only reason to split the blue network is to prevent TiVo from attacking other boxes, such as desktops and printers. Yes, this is clearly not paranoid enough for a guy who insists on a dumb TV.
