Router with fios actiontec

Ok so i have read through a lot of the different dual router configurations for fios customers. However I am still lost. I was wondering how I can get a better setup for my wireless gaming, and roku in my house. I have tv/internet and want to keep the on demand services. I have a netgear wndr3800 that I just bought and I want to use that to make all my wireless connections because it should work much better at n speeds. I simply just want to optimize my house for better range and great speed. So I think the answer is to use my actiontec as my vod services and as a switch and then have my second router be the main for all wireless connections.

Can someone please recommend me the best setup for excellent performance?

Whether the Netgear is primary or secondary router will have no bearing on wireless performance.

So unless you have reason to make the Netgear your primary router, I recommend the following:
