Well you see they're both my fathes laptops and I'm not sure if he would want me to do that, because I'm not at all sure what that includes. I understand what you're saying and I did read over the Speccy page, I would just like to avoid getting into some trouble. Is there anything else I can do?

Is that it? I could only do one laptop, because my mother took the other one.
edit: If someone requests the specs again I will repost them.

Most likely this is just a modem that the OP's father has, and not a Gateway, which includes Wifi, routing, a four port switch, and the modem all in one neat package.
Bleeping Madman, Speccy will do nothing to fix this issue. It is like telling your mechanic that your car just made a noise like something exploding under the hood, and all of a sudden just stopped. Either the mechanic will tell you what is wrong, or tell you that there is nothing they can do, and you have to purchase the part needed to fix what caused the problem.
In this case, the OP's father needs either to contact Comcast to find out if they have a Gateway, if they are not clear from looking at the installation info, or go purchase a router, or for some odd reason, they are stuck behind the walled garden, and again need to contact CC to fix. Odd case, could be that they let the idiot CC tech install their proprietary software with the Constant Guard software, which needs to be installed.
So first things first, the OP needs to look and see if mom & dad has either just a modem, or actually the Gateway that CC is issuing. Then they need to go and look to see if the CC tech installed any proprietary software. If so, they need to remove that. Then they need to remove any DNS entries for IPv4 & IPv6 in the Adapter properties, then do a ipconfig /flushdns and netsh winsock reset catalog from the Command prompt.
Speccy is not going to fix the problem that the OP has, and will not show anyone anything of what is going on.

Speccy will help me see their computer. So I can assist them better please become familiar with the tool so you can understand its purpose and intention of requesting the information it's much like mini toolbox as scene throughout this forum.
Speccy will not solve this issue, due to it is not a computer issue. There is some important stuff that the OP left out. 1) Is there a router? If there is, what is the mfg & model#. 2) What is the modem or gateway that they got from Comcast, along with mfg & model info. 3) Did the Comcast tech install the Norton Internet security software, which comes free as a part of their "Constant Guard" package (total garbage install).
Again, too much is asked for people to use Speccy, when it does not even apply to the issue at hand.
Need to concentrate first on what hardware they have. 2) If there is any Internet security software installed on the computers. 3) Did CC screw up and they are still behind a walled Garden.
Asking a person to post info from Speccy, is like taking your vehicle into a shop, after the Drive shaft has fallen out on the road, which you saw it do. Or even worse, your engine throws a rod. But the mechanic wants to connect the computer to your car, to figure out what is wrong.

Ok, I can't really understand computer talk and it really isnt helping that you are both disagreeing with each other.
Yes i have a router. It's not working. Why? Because the last time I used it we had to reset it back to factory settings. Then yesterday I hooked it up and tried to access it's interface thing by using (192.168.1.1) and it worked. But as I was setting things up i hit save and it it NEVER let me get back to that screen. That is why I am not using the router. It's a Linksys Wireless-G 2.4 GHz 802.11g Model # WRT54GS V7
I don't think the comcast guy installed any sort of security software. He didn't mention any and i don't see it anywhere.
I don't know what model the modem is.
