Hoping my tip could help as a check list.
configure your router to browse internet and connect PC using LAN cable.
Only if you can browse net proceed to WLAN setting.

  1. Be sure your PC wlan adapter is on.
  2. be sure you see your SSID
  3. remove every security from your router
  4. keep your LAN connection and start your WLAN connection
  5. restore security protection when your WLAN is up and running changing ONE single parameter every time: Encryption, channel, PW

Hello houng_lee,

I have the exact same modem, if the modem/router light is blinking, that indicates a problem with the modem. You indicate that you have internet connectivety, so you should have modem light solid blue. When you look at the Wireless light it's probably off. Which means that at this point you have internet connectivety, you should put the cd in and run through the wireless connection wizard on the CD. It will check to see 1) if you have internet connection, 2) the type of connection you have (comcast) 3) if you have any wireless devices to be hooked up. 4) That all connections are working properly.

If you have a laptop that you want to connect to the wireless router, have it next to the router, so once you've finished setting up your Wireless security and issing a WEP number for local access, you can test your setting immediately with the Laptop. I always suggest that you create a WEP number for securty reason, If you perfer not to create a WEP number, and leave it as an open access (which is fine, and easier to setup) make sure that you shut off broadcasting, So your neigborhood doesn't jump online once they see an open access router.

If you've tried these steps let me know what problems your getting during the wizard setup. It will tell you if everything is setup correctly, or their is an error. Right now, I think the problem is your setup, and it's not communicating correctly. But, the wizard will tell you that as well.

Let me know,

Good Luck

Mark
