A few points for clarification.  Is the router a c900 and not a c9000?  If its the c900 then it is a 4 port ethernet and wireless router.  It works with your comcast modem. 


Per this article:  http://kb.netgear.co...xfinity-service

you can see how your modem connects to your pc.  Or in this case the router then your pc. 


2 things are required to use your phone line, one is that you have to have voice service through comcast.  The other is to have a mode that supports voip (voice over ip).  As an example:  http://www.amazon.com/Cisco-DPQ3212-Cable-Modem/dp/B0094ZAKQQ. You can see from looking at the picture of the rear of the modem, that it has telephone jacks. 


I would take a look at this and see if it helps you at all:
