I want to be able to manage my own firewall and first thought I would install Zyxel firewall after Verizon's. Should I just take Verizon router out of the loop and plug USG Flex 100W directly into the Verizon ONT? And will this entail a conversation with Verizon?

    IMVHO if you're willing to remove the router, the conversation with Verizon should start before removing the device or configuring the USG Flex 100W to replace it.
