I would suggest that first you stop using the first modem. Then plug your computer into the modem and install using the comcast cd that came with your welcome package. If that doesn't work please tell me.

Are you saying you are trying to setup a wireless connection, even though you don't have internet? Impossible!
Normal setup - Connect the ISP modem to main uplink port on router. Then connect pc to any other port. Done!
Now connect PS3 as normal. Look for the Belkin network SSID and Key. There is a small piece of paper underneath the router with default ID and password key. It is also noted on Web Admin page. You can always use the reset to clear any custom settings.
Access point option is only for unsecured connection. Do not use.
you need to sequential power cycle all the equipment, turn off ps3, turn off router, and turn off modem. then one by one turn it on. start with the modem. and wait for the lights to settle in. then the router. if all the lights had settled in. turn on your ps3 then try to connect again. this should work
you can put your ps3 in a dmz zone. if still does not work its not your router. u can keep your ps3 in dmz and get your router to open ports. u can call your router company. If still does not work its not your router more than likely. It might be your modem. i have at&t and that was my issue. i went to dmz on modem and allowed it to pass through dmz zone and ip addresses to pass through. but make sure on your comp u have spyware or something. Your ps3 can not get virus.
hello..sir/mam..here is the way to find the setting IP address.click internet explorer then type this numbers:>(192.168.1.1)..then if you see the Box of Router Name only you need type in the box name Password is (admin)..Thanks and Good Luck..^_^
The router should assign an IP address to your PS3 if it isn't manually configured. If you are connecting wirelessly make sure your security setting on your PS3 match your router. If the problem persists disable wireless security on your router and then try to connect with the PS3 with security disabled as well. Sometimes consoles have trouble connecting with WEP or WPA security encryption.
Check to make sure that your router has gotten an IP Address from your ISP. Because you PS3 is telling you that it has an IP from your router. This means that the Router to PS3 connection has layer 3 connectivity, but what about from your router to your ISP? check that in the router by logging into the router's web page and going to the status page it should have your information from your ISP if it does not make sure that the main page is set to the proper settings either get IP automatically (Cable Modem) or Get PPPOE (DSL) connection (Make sure that your password information is correct to).
Now after checking these items make sure that you set the router up as the DNS for your network buy setting this on the status page then in your PS3 (set the DNS setting to point to your router, and set your router up as a caching DNS server). Then power cycle the router after saving everything, and power cycle your PS3 after setting everything. This should clear up your problem.
Hi philly - If this fixes your problem please rate as fixed. PLEASE wait til your fixed. Are you runnimg your pc wired? Check to make sure that your IP connection is set to obtain ip automatically and obtain DNS server automatically. What's your operating system please/ Thanks.
