I am trying to connect u-verse to my xbox 360. The gateway is in another room so i cannot connect it directly. I have the wall unit connected directly to our uverse tv box.I can connect the 360 directly to the wall and it works fine but then I cannot have the tv recording for DVR. I have a netgear router. I tried to connect it to the router but i did not receive a connection. Do i just need to allow my router to be seen by my network or do i need to buy a switch. I need suggestions since I am new to u-verse.

I connect my Xbox directly to my set top box using an Ethernet cable which works great.

You can do one of 2 things:
1. Purchase a small Ethernet switch that is 802-1p compliant, such as the NetGear GS105.
2. You can use your NetGear router, but you will have to configure it and hook it up as follows:
Note that you will not use the WAN port at all, it will be left empty.
