    Is the Mac wired or wireless? Also, did you turn on your Airport?

Verify that you have the correct wireless settings- you'd have to check them in Airport. If you have one pc online, and the other isn't- try plugging the Apple into via ethernet (the thick cable)
If it gets online that way- you know it is a setting w/in Airport (the wireless manager for the Apple) at that point, verify the settings in your router, and make certain you have the information set correctly in Airport

I bought this modem to replace the one I rent from Comcast, and want to connect it to my wireless router. The "Quick Guide" gives directions, but only refers to PC installation, and I have a...


first you need to make sure that the new modem is provisioned (added to your account from comcast). you can do this by connecting your router to the coax cable and plugging it in (like the old modem was) then call comcast and ask them to provision the new modem (they will want you to return the old modem a local office to avoid rental fees on it). once the modem is provisioned.
1. unplug the power to the modem and router2. connect the router and modem the way you had it with your old modem (Ethernet/cat5 connects from port on modem to interent/WAN port on router)3. pug both router and modem back in
all should work now as long as there are no funky (meaning non-default) settings on your router. so, long answer to say, "no, there should be no special settings that are different for your mac"

Use safari as it is mac. Go to connection/internet panel and set up connection with whatever connection you have. If comcast is giving you issues force them to make the connection work. Its part of your benifits.

Connecting internet to the playstation 3


Before connecting the ethernet cable to the back of your Playstaion3 hold the modem reset button for 15 seconds, when 15 secs are up connect the ethernet cable to your ps3 system, wait until tour Comcast High Speed Internet goes online again (all the lights are showing fine) then try setting up your Playstation connection settings again, it might work since now you have reseted your modem and the modem will send information to new device, I hope this information works for you, :)

When router is connected to D-link modem, no internet service for Macs or PC through Comcast. Had router tested at Apple store, and it tested fine. Comcast says it is a "router problem" but this occured...


Try running this test... I got it from a Comcast technician who came out when I had same problem.
Look for any failures or anomolies. Look at the signal page and check to make sure the signal to noise ratio is in the 30's or low 40's. If higher, call Comcast and tell them.

Cannot connect to the internet


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.

Can't connect to the Internet via router


Well, this is a very generalized problem that others have, so i'll give you some starting tips. If you can connect when you plug your computer directly into the modem, then it sounds like your modem is bonding to your computer. There are a couple ways to fix this. The easiest is to ask your router to clone your MAC addess (not to be confused with a mac computer, a MAC address is a 10 digit code that uniquely identifies your computer on a network). See the attached image to find where it should be. c26d492.jpg
Once you set it to clone your machines mac address, unplug the computer from the modem, and plug in the router. If this doesn't fix it, please comment back and we'll try some other things. If it does, then give a good rating :-)
