Do you have your DSL set up with just the modem connected to one computer? You mentioned that "there is no internet connection problem without router". If you don't have the internet connection working without the router anyway, then how do you expect it to work with the router?
First, you need to make sure that you can plug in one computer to the modem and get an internet connection. This needs to be done with the Verizon Setup CD if you haven't done it already and by connecting your computer to the modem with the USB or Ethernet cable (you can use only one.) I would recommend using the Ethernet cable since this is what you will be using with the router. Once you have the Internet set up with one computer this way, then you can move on to the router.
Disconnect the computer from the modem and actually pull the power plug from the modem. Modems often will not reassign IP addresses when you change what device you plug into them, and thus need to be power cycled. Plug the ethernet cable into the WAN port on the Linksys (and make sure the other end is still connected to the modem) and plug the power cables of both the modem and the router back in.
You should now be able to connect your computer to the router with another ethernet cable (to one of the numbers ports, NOT the WAN port. This is reserved for the modem) and run the setup again.
