Fax machines usually only work over regular phone lines, not through digital cable or DSL systems. If your phone is a VOIP phone, it is a digital system and your fax will not work. It needs to be plugged into the Plain Old Telephone System (POTS) which is an analog system.
Your ISP should have given you the following information... Static IP, Internet IP Address, Subnet Mask, Gateway, Static DNS 1-3. With that information at hand, follow tis link to the router user manual and go to Page 11 of the manual to go through the step by step process of setting the router up for an internet connection.
Use an Ethernet cable to connect the port on the Comcast modem to the WAN port on the Berklin (Belkin????) router.
Use another Ethernet cable to connect one of the LAN ports on the router to the Ethernet port on your computer.
Start Internet Explorer on your computer.
Connect to the web-interface inside the router.
Run the "network setup wizard".
Run the "wireless setup wizard".
You could do it, but it's a bit of a pain in the ***** and probably not worth the hassle. Actiontec DSL gateway was not designed to act as a "proper" router and therefore you won't be able to make it act like one permanently (well, unless there's a hacked firmware out there somewhere ;). Of course, since it runs linux, you can telnet into it and manually set up the ip addresses on both wireless/wired interfaces and the necessary route between them. It will then work as a wireless access point for your comcast cable modem, but any changes will be lost every time you reboot the actiontec. I've done it in the past with similar setup but quickly got tired of having to console the actiontec to add the ips and routes every time it crashed -and eventually got a proper wireless router. So-it can be done, just not easily. Have fun, Raf
You need to connect a router to the cable modem. The router then gets an IP address from Comcast and provides a gateway between the computers connected to the router.
The modem expects to communicate with a single Ethernet device, and provides an IP address to the first device that provides a piece of data called a MAC address. By placing a router in-between, the router gets the IP address that lets you communicate on the Internet. It provides local IP addresses to the equipment connected to the local Ethernet and "routes" those to the Internet. You can either hook your two devices into the router if it has enough ports, or hook you switch to the router and hook your PC and PS3 into the switch.
I might advised you to call the PS3 manufacturer to gather the ports of the PS3 then you'll needing the help of netgear provider to open the ports of the PS3 to the router, so that the PS3 will allow to the firewall of your router.
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.
