Question about Linksys BEFSR81 EtherFast Cable/DSL Router with 8-Port Switch (Retail) (NTRTLSEFSR81)
I have good net connection from any of the 4 ports on the verizon fios router M1424sr. When I connect one of those to the input of the linksys 8 port router, befsr81, I get no network connection through the linksys router. I have given the linksys router the IP address 192.168.1.1 so it would not conflict with the verizon router IP address of 192.168.1.1. But this still does not connect. What configuration settings on the linksys router should I use?

You need to check the ip address of your actiontec router, the default ip address of linksys router is 192.168.1.1, they should not be the same or else you will not able to connect the router to the internet.
To access the router web configuration
Let me also give you the site on how to add the linksys router to another existing router.
The linksys has 4 LAN port and 1 "Internet" port on the back - we ONLY use the LAN ports NEVER the Internet port - because your existing router is connected to the Internet - your linksys is connected to the LAN
