Became new customer to comcast-got the bundle package, internet,phone,cable. Voice overlay modem to accomodate internet and phone lines. Did not use their wireless router-using exsiting router D-Link model DI-624 airplus xtreme wireless broadband router. I unplugged internet cable and plugged into our router ,thecable from the comcast modem, and took the connecting cable to transmit between the router and modem. Tried to connect to internet-nothing. The routers light are lit for m1 and wlan. I also have 2 additional computers that were connected wireless prior to comcast and 2 laptops. All the computers recognize the new connection nbut re unable to connect internet. I received a C:prompt in my start drop down and I typed in ipconfig /renew and it gave me connection specific for comcast, ip address,subnet mask and default gateway. Unable to figure out why I can't get connected, I placed cables back into original places. Right now I have internet access only directly from nain computer where comcast set it up. Please help I do not want to have to give comcast another cent to rent a router

How do i connect a netgear wireless router to comcast modem


Unplug your Comcast modem from your electrical outlet. Connect the Ethernet cord from the back of your Comcast modem into the Ethernet port labeled "Internet" on your new router. Connect an available Ethernet port from the back of the new router to the Ethernet port on the back of your computer.


Plug your cable modem into an electrical outlet. Plug your new router in an electrical outlet.


Reboot your computer. Click on "Start," then "Control panel." Click "Network and sharing." Select "Set up a new home network."

Click on the option for a router or cable modem when prompted by Windows to select your hardware. Your computer will attempt to access your new router. When the brand name for your router is listed, double-click it so your computer can configure itself to the new router.


Create a new name for your home network and create a unique password to prevent unauthorized users on your network. Your computer may reset your Comcast modem and router so your new changes can take effect.

I have a DSL502T ADSL Router,and have bought a new emachines computer. I can not connect to the internet. The computer has a wireless connection loaded but I want to connect by dailup Please could you help...


You are a bit confused with the various components required for Internet connections.
If you have a dial-up connection with an Internet Service Provider, all you do is connect your computer's modem port to the phone line and dial the phone number of your Internet Service provider.
If you are connected to the Internet Servise Provider by ADSL and have a combined ADSL router and modem then you connect the phone line to this router/modem. If the ADSL modem is separate component then the phone line is connected to the ADSL modem and this modem is connected to the router with a LAN cable and the computer is connected to the router with another LAN cable. If the route is wireless and the computer has a wireless card then you don't need a LAN cable between the router and the computer.
If you are connected to the Internet by ADSL, to secure your Internet connection and configure your computer so it can connect to the Internet, please follow my instruction - click on this link :-

Browser and email continuously won't load


I would have to say this is a problem with Comcast, call them and ask for a line test, tell them that you are having this problem on multiple computers, and you have even tried connecting directly to the modem. If they can run a test on the line, hopefully that will shed some light on the issue.

Often times with Cable/Phone companies, the right hand doesn't know what the left is doing, be instant that they check, at the very least they can check connection to your modem from their end.

I have two Comcast cable internet lines in my house. One is for business, the other is personal. I have two modems and two wireless routers for each. I want to consolidate into one modem (business), and...


You need to talk to your comcast supplier and see if they will set up dedicated IP's coming in one line then you would need to put a hub between the comcast cable modem and the 2 routers. Then each router is set to having the dedicated IP address in their setup.

This is a general answer but its the basics necessary. I don't know if you are comfortable in this "depth" of setup and configs. But its what you need to do.

While I'me on the internet (adsl), and I receive a call, the internet connection is lost. It takes a few attempts to re-connect it after.


your dsl provide you with filters and these filters must be install on all the phone jacks then the phone connects to that and there is one that has two opens in the filter this one has to be with the modem installe the same way except the phone goes to the phone side and the modem has (assuming your not using comcast that is totally different setup) there is no filter for comcast...

if all filters are installed properly then check the phone and the line that connects them sometimes a phone has 4 pins in them and the regular phone line has 2 pins in the center make sure you are using a 2 oin phone line after you check the phone base to see which one it requires (for comcast this could be your problem)

Hi sorry about the chat session the other day, i was not able to see your chat message so I end the session, but to help you with your concern, since internet is already working, then the problem here is the VoIP settings on your modem (since you said it has phone ports on the modem), usually resetting the modem wont change the VoIP (Voice over IP) settings. It would be better if you ask you VoIP provider to check if the modem's VoIP settings is setup correctly. If yes, and you have internet with the modem then upgrading the firmware may help.

If you dont have a VoIP provider then you need to get one in order for the phone line to work.

If you already have one, then contact them so they can configure the VoIP settings on that modem.Get your money's worth with their service

When I tried to go online my Compaq Presario SR110nx gave error 680


Error 680--- No dial tone
A) Test modem by dialling a number through HyperTerminal or phone dialler. This will test the Modem without using Dialup Networking.
B) Make sure you are using the correct and/or original cable. Some modems used specific wiring which is not compatible with standard modem cables.
C) Check that you phone line is working with a normal phone.
D) Make sure the phone line you are trying to dial on is not a non-standard line, this can cause problems also.
E) If all the above are OK then get a new modem or test in a different location.

Compaq was bought with msn companion service required


This is where you should be in contact with Comcast Tech Support 1-888 262-6300.
The INSTALL tech should have had you on-line before he left.
You need to conect your TV/Computer Cable to a Cable modem and a CAT 5 cable to your NIC (Network Interface Card)
All the lights on the modem should be on except the TEST light and the DATA light should be blinking.
You may have OLD drivers for the Cable modem, download those from another computer from the modem MFG.
Nothing else is required.
