    I have a linksys wireless cable router with 4 computers hooked to it. I have a cable modem that normally feeds into this router. Tonight for some reason the internet connection only seems to work when it goes directly into a computer. But I can see all the computers over the network and I can move files back and forth. I don't know if this is a comcast problem or not. I called them and they said they couldn't even take my call because of call volume. But I'm on the net now when I bypass the router. Any suggestions on how to trouble shoot this?

    Thanks,
    Don

    You should hook up the pcs to the router one by one instead of all at once, that may isolate if its one pc causing the problem at least...

    thats if the net works when at least one pc is connected to the router that is

    I'm on the comcast forum and it looks like the issue maybe comcast. I think they lost their dns servers. Still can't figure out why I can get on if I bypass the router. I'll try your suggestion thanks.

    Last night, Comcast took a major hit. I was out for several hours, had a new router in, direct connect, etc. I finally figured that it had to be Comcast, and then it all came back. I couldn't get to my Comcast webpages until this morning.
