Yes, so long as only one is getting a WAN dhcp address and acting as a DHCP server.

I.E. configure one of them to be a fixed ip address on the same subnet as the vz router e.g. 192.168.1.2

You can NOT have two active coax WAN connections.

You can however, you a second Actiotnec router as a MOCA bridge to provide an ethernet connection in a rooom that has only an active coax connection.  See part 2 of the following FAQ:

Can I get an ethernet connection in a room with only coax?

I guess we are in agreement then.
