That's pretty iffy. The 4-year-old Linksys is probably 802.11g, so this 802.11n router will be somewhat faster; probably not earth-shattering. The question is whether or not the USB adapter will work with the TiVo. While the description says there's drivers for Linux (which is what the TiVo runs), there's no guarantee that the TiVo folks included the driver for this adapter in their builds. I can't find any reference to this being TiVo compatible, which likely means that it's not. (edit: some of the older 802.11b SMC USB adapters apparently do work on a TiVo, so while it's still a crap shoot, it may actually work.)
I'd say that if what you're using is working, don't mess with it.
Woot! Now 100+ woots for me!
That's 87 woots (Including Twelve Bats On Crack!), 12 Sellout.woots, 8 wine.woots and 4 kids.woots, and finally, 2 shirt.woots!
