Re: DSL/Router-Modem connectivity issues.
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.
