I am provided service by Comcast. I have a motorola surfboard modem that works fine. And even though i cannot connect to the comcast broadband connection(when i look at the properties for it, the area for the service name is blank, is this a problem?), i have a LAN connection which allows me to connect to the internet fine.
But in order to enable online internet sharing, i have to let the windows firewall allow it. When i try to do that, it says "Due to an unexpected error, Windows cannot bring up Windows Firewall settings". So when i reinstall the thing, i cannot connect to the internet. It says i am offline, even though the LAN network says it is perfectly connected. So i end up having to use system restore to return internet service.
