Howdy and welcome to G2G:

So are you signed up to a broadband ISP??

Do you have a cable or DSL modem for broadband??

Or, are you just trying to setup a simple LAN between two computers??

Have you setup your broandband connection as per Comcasts instructions.. IP address, DNS server address, username and password, etc.. ??

Are you using a normal coax cable from your cable jack to your cable modem and then a cat5 cable from the modem to your NIC??
