Router to Router connection question....

I just had my fiber optic internet service(Verizon) installed over the weekend and have a question.....
Verizon supplied a new wireless router that has a slower wireless speed than my old Lynksis router. I have two laptops that I use around the house on the wireless network. With the Lynksis, I was seeing 54mbps. With the new router, I'm only seeing 11mbps.
My question, can I hook my Lynksis router up to the newer unit and configure it to act as a wireless access point to take advantage of the faster speeds?

Re-read the last question, he asked if he could hook his Lynksis router up to the newer unit and configure it to act as a wireless access point to take advantage of the faster speeds?

Okay.

How do I do this? Just connecting the Lynksis G router to an available port on the FiOs router does nothing.

log into your fios router with IE (http://192.168.0.1) and find out what ip it has given your linksys router (might as well disable wireless in that fios modem while you're at it), you can find out what ip has been assigned to your linksys router by clicking on the DHCP section of the Home tab (it should be something like 192.168.0.101) go back to IE and log into your linksys router and enable the wireless feature. hopefully you dont have to forward any ports, but if so, its easy.

1. It is Linksys.

2. Pretty sound advice from the members. I'd certainly nuke the wireless on the Verizon provided box, OR check to see if it supports 802.11G. It could be as simple as turning that feature on, but I am not familiar with what is provided for that service. I only have Comcast since I am lazy.
