How do I hook up a router to my playstation 3 with my comcast connection? I want to run my pc and my playstation 3 and not have to unplug and plug the ethernet cable back and forth.

there should be some other ports on the router if not it is a modem and you will have to buy a router, just plug a different cable into other router port and the other end into ps3 and presto .If no router buy one and run the one that goes to pc to router internet port than you need 2 cables that that you plug into different ports then to pc and ps3 . you can call me for free advice if none of this makes sence,

We have comcast internet and we were woundering if we can hook up the wii to the comcast internet modem through a usb cable if so we hooked it up and we dont know how to get the internet on the wii.

No you can not directly connect using the usb connection.

You need to connect either wireless through a router or you need a wii LAN adapter to connect with the Ethernet cord.

Good Luck....

Call COMCAST. They can trouble-shoot from "their" end,
if you tell them that none of your computers get an IP-address.

Also, plug _one_ computer _directly_ into the COMCAST modem.
Can you web-surf with that configuration?

Cannot share my cable modem connection

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 get internet service on my laptop,but not my PC. I have a comcast high speed modum

If you are connecting with the laptop's ethernet port, make sure the Comcast tech didn't assign a static IP address to it. If you are connecting straight to the modem with no router, that might be the case. I've seen it happen before.

How do i hook up a westell router to a moterola comcast modem?

Okay, well something is obviously wrong.
This is how it should be connected. Internet to modem, then with an Ethernet cable, connect the modem to the router (jack1) then with another Ethernet cable, connect the router (jack2) to the computer.
If you are still having problems, then contact your company to see if they could walk you through it, or if they needed to set things up.
Also, where are you connecting your laptop from? Is it very far from the router? Perhaps your router's signal strength isn't great enough? (This would mean getting a new, more powerful router.)

Internet connection

It depends... If you use a router for the Internet then you don't need any cable, just turn on the router and then go to the PS3 and configure the PS3 to work with the router. If you have wired internet, then you will need an Ethernet cable, but since the PS3 comes with an Ethernet cable, you don't need to buy one. With the Ethernet cable, you have 2 options. If your modem has an Ethernet port, then just connect the PS3 to the modem directly. If the modem doesn't have an Ethernet port or direct connection won't work, then you can use Internet Connection Sharing to connect your PS3 to the Internet.
