    Okay i just got sent a new Modem/Router from Verizon
    model number: GT704-WG
    And i have a Wireless Router from Netgear is there any way i can make both the modem and router to work together using Netgears router because the one verizon sent me always loses connection and i just dont like how it operates. I had my old modem working perfectly with the Net gear router but i guess since this has a built in Router it automatically makes it use it
    because i want to use my iMacs with Ethernet not Airport if anyone can find any fix to my solution of some guidance id really appreciate it
    thanks :]

    You should be able to disable the router function of the device somehow in the settings and use your netgear instead, though, I've had nothing but issues personally with Netgears and Mac.

    If you can't figure it out, possibly call verizon and request a non-combo unit?
    Also, try checking out VZ forums. Lots of helpful folks and info over there who deal specifically w/ VZ/Comcast, etc...
