Hi I successfully installed a WirelessG 2.4 GHz to use with a Mac mini and and HP laptop. I have Comcast high-speed cable. I unplugged the router from both computers and modem to take it somewhere and now that I'm ready to use it again I can't remember which ports on the computers and the modem to plug the cable into...Can anyone help me with this. Thanks!

Your best bet beyond maxing out memory will be upgrading to an SSD. Depending on your operating system and versions of installed software, try using a program like XSlimmer to remove any powerpc files included in universal bundles.
Later MacBook (Pro) use a mini-DVI connector that does not pass analog needed for composite or S-video. Was yours ever working? And most DVI connectors do not pass sound as seen by your cabling. You cannot detect display through RCA. You just set it in Sys Prefs :: Displays, try some other settings, although your seem right.
I have a white early-2009 MacBook and mini-DVI to HDMI adapter (monoprice <$10) and HDMI cable and have not connected the TOS-link for sound, yet--just slideshows at 1920x1080. You will get a much better picture digitally.
Your HP 450 should of came with a high-speed, bi-directional connection cable that goes between your USB port printer and PC or Mac. Hewlett Packard recommends the HP USB 2.0 Printer Cable for your printer to Mac.
If you shop the web, or your town, you will be able to purchase the cable. One important thing to do is install the "MAC" HP 450 Printer Drivers on your new MAC first before plugging in the Printer. If you lost your install CD, you can download them free at www.hp.com - drivers and support.
As you know "B" goes to the printer and "A" goes to the Mac.
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If you are , you do not really need that disc as it provides useless and often outdated junk on the disc.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.
Cable modem or DSL? If cable modem without phone service, modem power has to be unplugged 2 minutes before the router is connected in order to release the mac address from memory. If cable modem with phone service, same thing applies, but battery backup must also be disconnected. DSL modem may require PPPoE setup into router.
The following article will describe how to setup Comcast High Speed Internet with a Linksys Router:
Connecting your cable modem to the Router
1. First connect directly to your Cable modem without the router and verify that you can get on line.
2. Once you've verified that you can get onto the internet without the router please proceed. If you can not please contact your ISP for further assistance.
3. Now unplug the Ethernet cable that connects to your DSL modem from the back of your computer.
4. Take the connection that you just unplugged from the back of your computer and connect it to the WAN port of the router.
5. Take a different Ethernet cable and plug it into port closest to the WAN port, or into the LAN port.
6. Look on the front of the router. The following lights should be illuminated:
- WAN Link
- Link/Act (On the port that you connected your computer to)
- Note If other lights other than Link/Act are illuminated on this port, that is normal
- You may have a few other lights illuminated depending on the model number router you have, but the 3 above must be illuminated for proper connection.
