I have a Actiontec MI424WR Gen 2 router/modem.
I want to use Google DNS. I had read that even if I enter the Google DNS that Verizon will overwrite them and use their own DNS. Is that true?
An option would be to diable the Verizon DNS and enter Google DNS in each computer/component. Would that be better?

No you can use whatever DNS you want.
Entering DNS settings in the Verizon MI424WR router to opt out of DNS AssistanceNote: The Verizon MI424WR router screens may vary slightly from those shown below, depending on when you purchased your Verizon router and the version of firmware loaded on it.

According to the instructions I am supposed to change Google DNS 188.8.131.52. to 184.108.40.206 and 220.127.116.11 to 18.104.22.168. Is that correct?

You would be fine using the original DNS that Google uses, so enter 22.214.171.124 and 126.96.36.199
