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.

good speeds but does it make sense without at least 2.5G wan?
You use high-throughput WiFi device to benefit LAN, i.e. to transfer files AND in order to support efficient traffic division between multiple, often non-homogenous clients (i.e. if you have "n", "g", "a" and "ac" laptops streaming videos or on Zoom video-calls simultaneously).

You just don't compare to TP as that company is not trustworthy - read about data-offload by TP devices to foreign IPs at night. Remember, Router CONTROLS your network, every bit flows through it and it has access to everything! Choose from Google, Cisco/linksys, Netgear, Amazon, Asus. That's it.

Quote from prsk :
I currently have a arris router modem combo. Is this similar or if I get this, should I buy a modem also? Mine is a apartment and signal issues from living room to bedroom. Also I want dual concurrent frequencies. I prefer to have both 2.4 and 5 Ghz.
AX device is not going to help you with coverage (provided ARRIS works correctly). 2.4GHz has 3x coverage radius of 5GHz, and AX relies on combination of channels. To del with coverage - check orientation of device (each has antenna profiles published); if necessary - repeater. Otherwise - look for 2-pice "mesh" system which you would connect to your existing arris and disable arris's routing function (use as modem).

There seems to be some confusion and misinformation about WiFi 6 in this thread.

WiFi 6 (802.11ax) operates on both the 2.4GHz & 5GHz channels and is essentially a small upgrade to WiFi 5 (802.11ac). WiFi 6 IS NOT 6GHz, that will be WiFi 6E (although some WiFi 6 routers might be upgradable to WiFi 6e in the future via firmware updates)

Lower frequencies (2.4GHz) provide better wall penetration and range while higher frequencies (5GHz+) provide higher speeds.

For those of you who want to improve your connection quality/range, buy a mesh system. This router will not really improve your connection quality/range (albeit WiFi 6 does increase the 2.4GHz band performance which has good range/wall penetration so you could connect to your 2.4GHz band). There are WiFi 6 mesh systems that take advantage of of the WiFi 6 improvements, or Asus routers w/ AiMesh can double as a mesh network node as well.

WiFi 6 is more geared towards people who have a lot of wirelessly connected devices on their network such as IoT/smart home devices, due to it's improvements like OFDMA and handling a lot of connections efficiently.

tldr:

Buy a WiFi 6 router if you already have a strong connection quality around your home and you want to improve wireless speeds OR if you have a lot of wirelessly connected devices.

Buy a mesh system If you want to improve your connection quality or range around your house.

Arrival December 14th. No thanks. Will see about 20 other deals with instant pickup or next day delivery in the meantime. Costco failed on this. Their tplink $99 router deal today only was also December 14th availability. What a joke.

Quote from mtbor :
Wifi6 penetrates walls even more poorly. Google smallnetbuilder to find devices with good coverage. The netgear x4s (r7800) and ORBI mesh systems both provide excellent coverage and speed.

Wrong.

It is about the band they use (2.4ghz vs 5 ghz). WiFi6 can actually penetrate more than WiFi5 because WiFi6 also supports 2.4ghz. The downside of using 2.4ghz is the oversaturation or dirty air. Also, there are only fewer channels to bond. 5ghz on the other hand is wider. So many available channels to use and to bond. The WiFi6E will make this even better due to more channels being introduced. The downside of 5ghz of course is that it can't penetrate much as the 2.4ghz. However, the penetration and distance difference only matters if you are in an isolated place where 2.4ghz is clean. If you live in a dense area like an apartment, forget about 2.4ghz. You will benefit more on the cleaner Signal to Noise ratio of the 5ghz even through walls.

Also, WiFi6 is better suited for high dense area than WiFi5. I can go on technical on this but in short, WiFi6 is better.

Any suggestions on a MESH system? I have poor signal in my basement and just have the basic router that comes with Xfinity. Looking for something to improve range and connectivity/speed. Range more than anything

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.
you will need a new modem and router, this is just a router but can easily support those speeds if you get a compatible modem
