When i tried to hook up the router all of the cables fit except for the one that is supposed to connect to the back of the computer tower. The cable that hooks the tower to the router fits the router, but the other end is too big to fit in the slot in the back of the computer. any help would be appreciated

You can Google the model number of the Toshiba for a 'manual" or owner manual which will show your set.
Usually with a cable box in goes to box and out to cable fitting on rear of set and set to channel 3. Output of a box with audio/video cables is same except they connect not to the cable fitting but to the rear inputs on back of set.
FYI most cable companies will come out, connect it and hook it up for little or no charge.
You connect an ethernet cable from your modem to the WAN socket on the rear of the router.
Then you connect an ethernet cable from any one of the 4 lan ports to your computers ethernet socket.
If your pc has a wireless adapter, you can disconnect this after you have logged into your router and set the security.

You will have to start the configuration from the wired network rather than the wireless network. Connect the computer directly to the router. I am assuming you might be trying to configure the router from the wireless network. Then use the installation CD to configure the router
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 your router was working before, and suddenly stopped working, then you probably need to reset it.
Unplug the router from power, also unplug all network cables from it.
Wait about 30 seconds.
Plug power back in, followed by network cables.
Wait some more seconds while the router restarts.
Only the Power light and the Status light should be solid. All others in use must be blinking, which means they are in use.
Try connecting to the internet with cable first, then try wireless.
It should work.

On these cable modems the link light is supposed to blink when you are connected to a router/pc. If you are hooking up a wireless router new you need to power cycle/reset your cable modem before you hook up the wireless router so that way it can refresh its ip address.
Hi mark - please don't rate this til it's fixed. Hook it up the way you had it. i.e. modem>router>pc. Try it, probably won't work. Unplug the power on your modem and the router. After 60 seconds plug in your modem. When all the lights return to normal (except the activity light), plug in your router. Give it 20 seconds or so. Try it and let me know what happens. Thanks.
Hi Sherry - The etherport port on your modem should be connected to the WAN port on your router. You then connect your pc to one of the 4 ethernet ports on the router. If this answers your question PLEASE rate this as fixed. If you need more help just add a comment and I'll be happy to assist you further. Thanks.
