If you can comprehend the grammar used by "rocker ramji" then you will have the physical portion of your connection made. To make sure the devices sync up, power down the modem, router and PC. Turn them on one by one starting with the cable modem, then router, then the PC. It is imperative to wait for each to have the correct steady-state indicator lights before powering up the next device in each case. One more problem indicative of Comcast is the need to clone the MAC address of the Cable modem. This is usually done with your browser, accessing the software setup features within the router. As every router uses different procedures for this, you will need the reference/manual info for your particular brand to clone the MAC address.

My hp dv4000 caps lock and scroll lk lights are blinking but the labtop wont come on, what do i do?

First take the battery out and disconnect all the cables from the sys and remove any accesories connect and press and hold the power button for 30 to 40 seconds. Insert the battery and power cord and try turning the sys on and keep tapping the F10 key to go to the BIOS screen. If the system boots to the BIOS screen than hit the F9 key to set BIOS defaults and turn on the sys, if the sys doesnt turn on than disconnect everything along with the battery. You will have to open the back of the sys and take the RAM and harddrive out and reinsert them back into the sys and than try to turn on the sys after the RAM and HDD is put back. If this time the sys doesnt turn on than the motherboard has gone bad, you will have to get it repaired.

The notebook does not detect wireless networks and the wireless adapter is not detected in the device manager

You need to disconnect all the cables and the battery from the sys and press and hold down the power button for about 30 to 40 seconds than connect the adaptor and the other cables in and boot the sys to the BIOS screen and set theBIOS defaults.
Than check if the wireless button is blue or not or if the sys is connecting to the network.
If it doesnt than try going online trough the hard wire and download the latest drivers for the network adaptors and install them after that restart the sys.
After that if doesnt work out that means the mother board has gone bad as this series of laptop manufactured by HP has a recall on the motherboard and HP was providing a free repair for these. You must check with HP if the enhancement program is still active on your sys or not.

Disconnect all the cables from the sys and press and hold down the power button for about 30 seconds.
turn on the sys and keep tapping the F10 key on the keyboard to boot to BIOS and set it to defaults. Restart the sys
If this doesnt work out than you need to disconnect all cables from the system and open the chasis.Reseat the RAM , VEDIO card and the cables for the HDD.
Close the chasis and connect all the cables back in their place.
Try turning on the sys if it doesnt turn on that means the system has an hardware issue and needs hardware repair

How should the D-link be setup to work with comcast and vonage? After I set vonage or internet do not work. I tried the comcast modem to d-link and d-link to vonage.

If you want to RECEIVE telephone-calls:

COMCAST ADSL/CABLE modem <---> VONAGE <---> wireless-router

Turn each piece off.
Turn on the COMCAST modem, and wait for its lamps to settle-down to a "steady" pattern.
Turn on the VONAGE router, and wait for its lamps to settle-down to a "steady" pattern.
Turn on the D-link router, and wait for its lamps to settle-down to a "steady" pattern.
Restart the computer that is connected to the D-link router,
and you should have Internet access.

D-Link connect to comcast

connect the the ethernet cable to the WAN port of the modem.

the connection should be:
One end of the cable is connected to the modem and the other should be connected at the WAN port of the modem.

Now use another Ethernet cable plug it in on the LAN port1 and the other end to your computer.

Access the configuration page of your router and set the wireless setting inside your DI-624 router.
