Have you confirmed that your modem does not have a firewall built in? Since it doesn't work when directly connected, it means it's most likely a firewall issue on the PC (which you mentioned above that you disabled), firewall problem on the modem (check the modem's control panel to see if you can DMZ or open ports in it), or your provider is intentionally blocking ports.
What model modem do you have? Who is your internet service provider (ISP)?

You can use the Glasnost Test to check fowr blocked ports from your ISP. Then can sniff for protocol as well and block the requesting port. Popular for bittorrent traffic restricting.
While connected directly to the modem, open up command prompt and enter the following command:ipconfig /all
Under local area connection or something similar you should have a default gateway: XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX. Take note of this and your IPv4 address. In your web browser try accessing your default gateway's IP address (this is normally the IP of your modem). So for example, if your default gateway is 192.168.2.1, type http://192.168.2.1/ into the address bar.
If your default gateway and modem starts with 192.168.X.X then your modem most likely has a firewall. If this is the case, I'd recommend contacting Comcast and see if they can put your modem into bridged mode or DMZ your router inside of the modem.
