But is your TV a "Smart TV"? That means does the TV connect to the internet. Just because you have Comcast connected to your TV doesn't mean it is getting an internet signal. The black coax to the TV only carries a TV signal.
To get internet service to your TV first you have to determine if it is capable. If it does have a wireless receiver in it, you will have to configure it to attach to your wireless base station. If it doesn't have a wireless adapter you will have to connect a network cable from the base station into the TV and then configure it to work with your network. Once you have that internet signal working on your TV you will be able to use Netflix on your TV.
I am assuming your router or modem has wireless capabilities, or you have a wireless hub. If your provider is comcast you have to have comcast wireless equipment. Make sure wireless is turned ON at modem/router switch and or IP page(192.168.0.1 in URL. most equipment uses that address by default if not you will have to get the address from the manufacturer of your equipment.). Again if your provider is comcast call comcast to set up your equipment (you have already paid for it!).Once you have established you are broadcasting a signal you should have no problem connecting. I hope that I helped GOOD LUCK
If you connect the computer directly to the modem, does it work? If that works then the modem is working. Now connect the computer to the router and the modem to the router. You will need to open the set up page of the router to check the settings of the router. You can set up the router without the CD also. It is very easy.

That sounds like you have everything together to set up your own home wired network.
Make sure you have a contract with an ISP (Internet Service Provider) - quite obvious, but you don't believe how often I see problems related to that.
You did not mention which modem you have. If you want a wireless network, then either your modem has to have wireless capabilities, or you need a wireless router (something your laptop can connect to). See the picture below:
When you set up your router, do NOT use the disk that usually comes with the device. Although it might seem easier in the beginning, on the long run you are way better of if you know what you are doing. Do it manually. There are tons of help pages out there which show you how to do it, follow the manual or come back here.

First try connection the Yellow ethernet cable from the rca modem to your computer's network connection. If you get a connection this way, then your modem will work with a ethernet cable. If not, then call Comcast for help. The modem ethernet out to computer port must be connected to the wan line of the router. Then you can connect an ethernet cable from your computer network connection to one of the 4 ports of the router. For wireless connections you must set up the router and wireless adaptor with the same settings to connect. Follow the routers directions.
If that's hooked to comcast you can only have one computer hooked up to it, and no modems as they block mac address. If you are a Comcast customer there is a workaround. Turn on your wife's wireless if she hasit, if not get her a wireless card USB is easiest. Turn on sharing on that wireless card and you will be able to access the internet through your wifes computer, and not run afoul of your Comcast agreement. Or request an upgrade to a wireless router from Comcast but your rent goes from $3.00 per month to $10.00!
splitters by their nature are flaky..i'd recomend you get a good phone line cable, since they are cheap, and simple..you have another phone line somewhere, to test the fax/cable combination, just to make sure?
