Can this router be used to replace Verizon's router

TP-Link N450 Wi-Fi Router - Wireless Internet Router for Home(TL-WR940N)

Yes, you should be fine with the N450 as long as you follow the articles advice on setup that I posted earlier.  You might take a look at the TP-Link AC1750 Smart WiFi Router if you want faster wireless as well.
