Likely not. Your FIOS is a modem, in that it should have a coaxial cable input on the back. The linksys is a router, that is, it pushes wifi out to devices and has no coax input.. I have an Airport Extreme, and connect from my modem to the router via ethernet.

So can you separate the function of your transport and your router today? At home here I have Xfinity/Comcast. They provide a single device that is both a DOCSIS modem and a router. I can replace the Comcast router only if I also buy or rent a DOCSIS modem. I am moving and will have AT&T when I move. That setup has fiber right into my closet and there I have two devices. In that case I think the connection from the FO modem to my router is a standard gig-ethernet connection. So I think I can replace their router easily assuming I replace it with another GigE device ... otherwise I won't get the throughput I am expecting and paying for. Does that make sense?
