Trying to set up a wired network to connect XBOX

Message 1 of 5

I am a new Mac user and am trying to set up a wired network for my son's XBox.  I bot a router at Office Depot but it clearly isn't compatible with my Mac.  I understand that I should be using a specific router (like one of the ones displayed on Verizon's website).  Anyone have any suggestions?  This shouldn't be so difficult but I am a bit of an idiot when it comes to technology.

 

Thank you.

What is the brand and model of the router that you paid for?

Add to that...if your a Fios user, why can't you use the  lan port from your Verizon supplied router?

I have my son's Xbox plugged in direct to the Verizon supplied router and it works without any extra configuration. I was told I would have to make some changes in port forwarding but it looks like the router did that automatically.

No kidding, and I know why.

UPnP in the router is turned on in the router.
