How do I piggyback two Verizon FIOS Actiontech routers?

Help! I have just had Verizon FIOS installed. The technician piggybacked two identical Verizon FIOS Actiontech routers. When it works, it works great. However, there are times when it does not work and I get error messages that speak of a problem with the DNS server. Internet Explorer cannot load the page and sometimes it works when I refresh or run the IE troubleshooter. Sometimes it does not work. At times I cannot go from one page to another.

When I disconnect the piggybacked router it works perfectly. I know that Verizon does not support piggybacking two routers, but from everything I read about it, there is a proper way of configuring the routers.

Can anyone give me step-by-step instructions on how to do this?

Thank you very much.

this gives you the various configurations, find the one that resembles your set up the closest, and then follow the instructions.
