    We have three Macs (one is a relatively new ibook) and Verizon Fios and can't get on to our school district's website (cbsd.org) with any of our Macs. I've tried downloading Firefox but that doesn't work either. Verizon said it's some kind of conflict with IP nos., and someone at Apple Support suggested I ask Verizon to update our router's software. We don't have trouble getting on any other sites. Has anyone experienced or heard of a similar problem?

    I've had no problems with Fios and our Macs. I would try to upgrade the router software. That might work.

    They have provided 2 solutions,
    both are about your router, NOT Mac specific, thus your title is wrong.
    "Mac and Verizon Fios conflict" should be -->
    "Router and Verizon Fios conflict"

    Mac and Verizon Conflict

    Is that correct? Because both Apple and Verizon (as well as our school district) said this particular conflicts occurs only with Macs (and fios) not with PCs and fios. Our local Mac store has had several people come into the repair department with the same problem. We're just hoping that updating the router software will solve it. Thanks for your comments.
