Is this a cable internet service (I'm in London Verizon means nothing here).
In which case it goes: service to Modem, Modem usually via ethernet cable to Router, Router by wireless to computers.
If the Verizon modem only has USB get them to send you a proper modem with ethernet connection.
if you can get me to at least able to get me and my brother on 2 computers to play games against eachother i will be happy

".....i dont have a cable/dsl cable it is usb powered internet you plug it in and connect......"
So you are using Cellphone type internet ? I wonder ?
To connect the three computers (presumably in the same house or room) connect them by ethernet cable* via the router's ports. Follow the instructions for networking that come with the game but also disable firewalls on all computers and enable file sharing on the appropriate folders on each machine. Check out Windows' Help for further instructions on networking.
If you want to use wireless, get things working wired first. Wireless is much slower.
