Yes, you will have to disable the Verizon's internal wireless so that you don't interfere with 2 competing signals.
Connect your Verizon's LAN port to this router and you will start using the Netgear's wifi.
This router will have a longer reach, assuming it is not shielded from metal or brick or dense building materials.

Reminder that Netgear is trash and nobody should be buying this crap for any reason ever.
Then please tell us what one should buy. I have no issue with someone providing their opinion, but if you do at least provide more insight into it.

wow someone's hurt....

netgear customer support is terrible i'll give you that. But if you know what you're doing, they can be excellent products. I have a nighthawk x8 for the last 2.5 years and have had no issues. Just make sure you get the best model you can afford and purchase the store's buyer protection plan if you're worried. Some units can be lemons and do need to be returned.

can someone care to answer this? I have a similar Netgear router and modem. Recently I moved to a new place where the speed is upto 600 mbps as per the plan, but with the netgear router modem combo, I get only 40 MBPS. so was looking to get a new one.

Any inputs will be appreciated.
Understood that it needs modem also. do you know of any decent modem that pairs well with the router. Bestbuy has netgear 16*4 docsis 3.0 for 60.

Any suggestions

Hard to go wrong with Costco, even though their return policy is a tad more reasonable than the "we'll take anything back that you ever bought regardless of how you've abused it" policy of the past.

While I'm not sure why others are criticizing Netgear, the online consensus seems to be that Netgear's firmware updates are terrible, breaking otherwise working routers. I've had a couple Netgear routers stop working properly after firmware updates, so I tend to update firmware infrequently.

nothing, just simple plain user error.
I don't believe in user error for such a simple device such as a router. What can the user mess up?

have to choose from this one or AX5200 from WorstBuy, finally decided to go with Costoco, will not achieve 5300bps or 4300bps either way
This is a theoretical maximum - only achievable with another 3-band device. Do you have AX client?

I agree that NG's model of trying to sell on extra services (i.e. nighthawk security) and stupid tiered warranty is bad. However, the device is good- there's not much reputable competition left around.

Quote from Rahman1 :
I'm currently still using a Linksys e3200 I've had for years. I have a 200mbps plan but I get about 30 on 2.4ghz and about 100 on 5ghz....although I never lose connectivity or have issues much.....is this a good replacement for it? I do game quite a bit and also work from home currently. Router is placed downstairs while I work upstairs. Home Is about 2700 sq ft but router is vertical downstairs. So the room I work in is upstairs but more directly above it?
IMHO, don't upgrade, no reason for it if you are getting stable 5GHz and 100MBps over it. To take advantage of AX your client needs to be AX, and I bet yours are not. This would NOT improve coverage, especially on 2.4GHz. You MAY have advantage with this if you have an AX repeater/extender, but otherwise, keep your working Linksys.

Any suggestions
Choose modem based on your ISP/Plan: some require DOCSIS3.1. Otherwise, as connection is with Ethernet - doesn't matter, there's no compatibility issues. Make sure to configure correctly (disable modem's routing functions) and use Gigabit (CAT6) certified cable between .modem and router if your plan is above 100MBps or above.

Besides the different in theoretical max speed, is there any other major difference between this one and BestBuy AX5200 one ?
