I am up and running and I can be connected for a few minutes, and then it just disconnects and connects, and disconnects and reconnects numerous times, it happens over and over again. When I am connected by ethernet there are no problems, it is just the wireless connection. I have tried a few things, but I really am not sure what more to do.

Make the connection back again...
Comcast modem to the yellow slot in router, and your PC to any one of the gray slot in the router....
Now check for the light status in router and tell me what are the light lit up in green and what light are lit up in amber....
Do you have anything else on the network besides your computer? If you do, it may be a conflicting IP address. I was told by the Comcast tech that the WNR1000 doesn't allow additional routers on the same network. Have to upgrade to a WNR3500 for that. When I disconnected my wireless extender, it fixed the problem.
Yes the NetGear router is compatible with Comcast. You'll just connect the one 'computer' output from the Comcast box into the WAN input on the NetGear box, and in the outputs from the Router plug it from there to your computer.
You are trying to set up the wireless router with the comcast modem, right ? You can set up the router manually , without the disc. Make sure that your computer is able to go online when connected to the comcast modem only. If you have the router working already then you just need to add a computer to the network.

All you need to do is "MAC ADDRESS CLONING". Access the router's setup page and look for MAC Clone settings. Enable that and clone the mac address of your main PC. After that, perform a power cycle. Turn off the router then the modem. Wait for 30 seconds then power on the modem first, wait for all the lights to go solid then power on the router. That should do it.
Light blinking on Netgear router means that the wireless is "working". Mine did the same thing. I had reset my network to 192.168.2.x instead of the default 192.168.1.x. Since this is usually on a diferent subnet it logically is on a different network and will not connect. From your post it sounds like you know what you are doing. If the config software for the router loaded correctly then there should be an icon in your Network path that shows the router. Double clicking should let you in by default. Set the IP address to your local network and try again.
