How long do I need router disconnected to free the wan lease?

Some VZ router setting changed within the last week which broke my wifi connectivity.  I stupidly allowed VZ chat to talk me into resetting the router to factory defaults which admittedly fixed the wifi issue but broke many other things.  I could correct the other things if I could get the VZ router connected to get a new IP address however I've discovered that the Negear WNDR3700 router that is currently connected to the ONT as the gateway apparently does not provide any means of releasing the WAN IP so I am forced into disconnecting the router from the ONT until the lease is released.

Alternatively can I request VZ chat to have the lease released?
