you wont see the pc screen on the tv if that is what your expecting, if the tv is capable of receiving netflix then it will pick that up seperately from the pc, it will only need a wireless connection to access the broadband, you will also need a valid subscription to the netflix service. The fact you have proved you have a valid wireless connection means its connected. There will be an options button to select the internet content to view on viera cast
quote from panasonic ---
VIERA Cast's assorted online content just keeps getting better - in
addition to the popular contents such as YouTube and Picasa Web Albums,
it now offers Pandora Internet Radio, movies streamed from Netflix*,
exciting sports from FOX Sports, tweeting web communications with
Twitter, and even home video and audio conferencing with Skype. It also
provides USB terminals for a keyboard and Wireless LAN Adaptor. No PC
required. Skype function requires an optional communication camera TY-CC10. Skype service will be available late June 2010. *Netflix unlimited membership required. Service on Viera Cast TV will be available summer 2010. *Keyboard and Wireless LAN Adaptor are not included.
Hello....sudden loss of wireless on two computers, in the same home, may indicate that a powerful source of wireless interference has just arrived (since your wireless router light is still on).
1) Does the signal improve if you move the router, or move the laptop closer to the router?
2) Have you had any success with changing the channel on your router? (Login to router > select Wireless Settings > Channel)
If you have not moved furniture yourself, or installed a device which could interfere with the signal (eg a DECT phone), it's possible a neighbour's new router may be the culprit.
As you already have the modem you only need a router. In all cases the modem connects to the WAN port on the router.
I think your best bet surely would be to go for a wireless router though? Then you wouldnt have to trail ethernet cables all round the house. I'm sure your laptop has a wireless adaptor built in unless it;s very old.
I always use Netgear networking stuff so forgive me posting a link to a nice 54G wireless router :-) :
try this plug up a line to laptop to modem to check to see if you can get connected if so then make sure you are on the same network and if so then call comcast to help you setup the laptop wireless settings in sound like the settings online doesn't have the laptop enable to accept the laptop
