  1. Buy a switch and plug it into one of the ports on the router. A switch will run about $50 or so, run a cable from the router to the switch (just like connecting another device) and then you can run cables from the switch to your other devices (DVRs).

    I had the same problem. Purchased a Cisco Hub (8 port) for $75,00. Hooked all my computers to the hub then a single cable from the hub to the fios modem/router. This allows other computers to see each other which was my main problem. Hope this helps. Ralph
