Re: Securing wireless network connection
You need to log into the wireless router either by a computer that successfully connects wirelessly or by physically connecting with an ethernet cable. Once connected, log into the router by open a web browser (Internet Explorer, MozillaFirefox, Google Chrome, Apple Safari), and typing the router's address (usually 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1) into the Address (or URL) line. The default usernameand password is usually "admin" & "admin" or "admin" & "password". Once successfully logged in, look for a tab or link that says "Wireless" or "Security". You'll be able to change whether security is enabled or disabled, and the password associated with it. Your security options are WEP or WPA (or WPA-PSK). WPA-PSK is the most secure, but WEP is also an acceptable choice. Select the security option of your choice and either enter text into the passphrase generator or choose your own password and type it into one of the security key text fields. If you use a password that is not a plain english combination of letters and numbers, be sure to write it down so that you can enter it as needed on other wireless devices that need to access your router (ie-pda phones, game consoles, laptops, desktops, etc). Be sure to save changes so that the security settings and password is saved. Let me know how you make out.

You need to obtain and connect a wireless router to the modem to add a wireless network. Use an RJ-45 between the WAN port on the router and to the yellow port on the TM822G (or similar Arris telephony modem). Check with your ISP. If you have set your computer to obtain an IP address and DNS server automatically, you will have the router's wired connection set up immediately.
You will need to check the router's manual to find its IP address and administrative user name and password. Using a computer with a wired ethernet connection to the router, log in and set up the wireless network; you probably will want to change the network's default name to one that is easier to remember. Enable the encryption and use a password on your wireless network. (I recommend disabling the guest account option.)
Then go to your devices that can connect to the wireless network and set them up to find that network. (For some tablets, see the Settings > Network > Wireless menus. On Windows 7 and 8 computers, enable the wireless adapter if needed. Then go to the Control Panel > Network and Internet > Network and Sharing Center. Then set up a new connection.) Some routers have a WPS button on the back or front. If you press this button when prompted by the device, the router will send out a signal that will pair the device and the router without much effort. For other devices, you will need set the device to search for available networks and then type in the password.
I hope this helps.
(I have a Linksys wireless router but there are other manufacturers with well-reviewed routers.)
When you did the initial setup for your router, you should have configured the wireless adapter in the router:
* set a SSID -- the "name" of the network
* set an encryption-level -- hint: use 'WPA' or 'WPA2'
* set a password for your network
It's that SSID/password that you need to enter on the DSI, to make a wireless connection to your router.
The WEP key is a encryption key that is configured in the wireless settings of the wireless router. This setting is then applied to the wireless card in the computer so it can connect to the wireless router.

Is it a wireless router? Do you have a wireless adapter on your laptop? If you don't have a wireless adapter on your laptop you need to install one. If you do have one you need to make sure it is turned on and enabled. You can do this by checking your device manager and making sure that your drivers are installed. Go into your network connections and make sure it is connecting. Also some of these wireless adapters need to be turned on in CMOS if it does not have a switch. About your router if it is not a wireless router, you'll need to get one to connect to it or talk to Comcast and see if they can switch out the one you have for a wireless one. Good Luck and let me know how it goes.
hi, mate check firewall settings of your modem/router. Then contact your IT administrator and he should be able to make changes to configurations for you. In most cases if server classify's your connection as unsafe it rejects it.
You need a router or network switch to share the single connection from this cable modem. Wireless router if you're so inclined. Comcast is about to jack the rental rate for that modem from $3.50 to $5 on January 1, at least in Atlanta.
