From my understanding, of how the Actiontec routers ip release functions. You type in a allotted time for the release, and it "should" process through. There's no manual release button within the routers GUI.
Most modems allow the public ip address lease to expire on demand
Apologies for the late reply. I conducted more research on the Actiontec router, there's no on demand release for the public ip address. There's a timed release in seconds, however it will not release and renew the public ip address. No idea, why this specific router/modem doesn't have a release. I can turn off the DHCP, wait for 12 to 24 hours, see if that will release the MAC. By the way, I noticed while the TP-link router/modem is connect, it is sending and receiving packets. I suspect it is a phone-line issue, going to contact verizon and see if a tech will come out give the lines a look.
PS: There's no internet access when the TP-link router/modem is active and plugged in, so attempting the verizon dsl website wont work.

The modem has a lan dhcp server and a wan dhcp client.
Surprised, I overlooked this! Thank you for all your help. I disconnected the public ip address from the Actiontec router, and connected the TP-Link, following instructions their tech support offered. The TP-Link is working, I'm able to connect via lan and wireless with internet connectivity. The connection isn't dropping, so all good for now.
I did notice the TP-link TD-W8960N doesn't have a on-demand release button within the web gui, just wanted to cover all my bases. In the instance, I had to disconnect the public IP address through the TP-link.
Thank you for all your help! It was much appreicated.
