Are you saying that none of the Radios would connect? Maybe the new
router's wifi is only using newer protocols, while the Radio is a bit
stuck on the past. Maybe you find other fellow Verizon users who know
the router? It might be crucial to configure it correctly in order to
still support the Radios.

Please search the forum for Verizon specific issues, or start a new
thread (as this most likely is not MySqueezebox.com related).
