You need to connect the comcast cablemodem to your ethernet connection on the computer and then go to start/settings/network connections and use the wizard to set up your lan connection.

Shutdown the computer.
Try rebooting the cablemodem. (unplug the cablemodem for a minute or more and then plug it back in).

Connect it directly to the ethernet port on the computer and then start the computer.
