Do your games require you to open ports? No doubt that this router has an internal firewall, which is blocking you. All you need to do is open a few ports, we just need to know which ones.

Try different combinations. It ultimately comes down to your router model and your ISP.

Well, usually, if you bought it from them, they'll walk you though the process. If no, you have to contact the router manufacturer.

Will Comcast provide a different type of router?

Surely they'd like to keep their customers happy.
