Yes....If I were you, I would not remove their actiontec router.  I
have tried to do away with several of these for people, and had
nothing but problems.  Not matter which router I used, it did not
perform as the actiontec does.  The router they provide is optomized
for their network, and you will lose no matter what you replace it
with.  I have tried M0n0, linksys, d-link, and others, but they all
had a performance hit.  I have not been able to figure out what the
big difference is, but there is one.
