I want to use my Tivo wireless adaptor on my PC

I got a Tivo, for free from my telco, because they want to keep us as customers by giving us free things (also doubled our cap a couple of times, so , start at 20gb and we're up to 40gb or 80gb or something)
I don't really want or need the Tivo, but spare parts for things are always useful. One of things that came with it is a wireless adaptor that you use to hook into your network so it can download programming schedules and stuff.
It's not a plug and play device, and I'm not really sure how to go about finding drivers for it, can anyone help?

OK, I'm stuck. After extracting the folder that needed to be extracted, and extracting that from another file, I am confronted with a number of extensionless files, and some files that makes it look like it was coded in a C variant or something. Sticking a .txt on the end of the readme file reveals some text amidst some gibberish. Also, looking at the sourceforge page, it says it was coded in C, so derp.

Ahh, it's a .doc
It isn't actually a driver, it's a "user mode utility to load firmware onto the
TiVo Wireless USB Adapter" so it doesn't actually help.
To the Tivo Underground forums!
