2 routers in series requires special setup
call the verizon router #1, and the Linksys #2. Assume #1 is connected to the internet by it's WAN (Internet) port

1) Connect to #1 LAN port, and write down the IP address. You need to know what IP range this router is set for. (ie like 192.168.1.1)
2) make note of the wireless channel in #1, most default to channel 6
3) Connect to #2 LAN port now, and set the IP range to something different (like 192.168.55.1)
4) Set #2 wireless to a different channel, like 1 or 11. Just try those 2 options. Check wireless security settings at same time.
5) Set #2 WAN port to use DHCP
6) Power off #2, plug #2 WAN port into #1 LAN port. Power up #2

That should be it. Good luck.
