If you are connecting with the laptop's ethernet port, make sure the Comcast tech didn't assign a static IP address to it. If you are connecting straight to the modem with no router, that might be the case. I've seen it happen before.

I need internet at my house. Can you provide internet connections?

we here at fixya dont have any internet service products at this time but i would recommend that you research what you want to do like just web browsing or heavy downloading then look into if you want slow speeds like dial up or high speed like broadband several places offer cheap dial up internet like aol or netzero or if you want to pay abit more money then go with a high speed provider like quest or comcast

Having problems setting up the dynamic comcast cable.router puts out a signal but laptops do not communicate.can not use my internet on main computer cable modum icon shows 100 mbps but explorer wont bring...

Call COMCAST. They can trouble-shoot from "their" end,
if you tell them that none of your computers get an IP-address.

Also, plug _one_ computer _directly_ into the COMCAST modem.
Can you web-surf with that configuration?

Cannot connect to the internet

Are you running the setup disc provided by comcast to get your email setup?

If you are , you do not really need that disc as it provides useless and often outdated junk on the disc. You should be able to surf the internet by plugging in your Ethernet Cord into the laptop with no problem.

On the issue of the Comcast user name and password, this was originally used at the original configuration of the modem when it is wallgardened.

You can always call Comcast and have then activate the modem for you. You'll need the Mac address at the bottom of your modem to activate it over the phone.

Online Activation usually requires your customer account number. But since it looks like you do not have this data, you will need to call them directly.
