    Router = Netgear MR814v2
    Cable Modem = Ubee D3.0

    Directly linked the laptop to the Cable Modem to run through Comcast's initial setup and all was fine. Since then I have add the wireless router to the mix in order to allow our multiple computers to access the internet. Ran through all setup proceedures via the Netgear setup wizard (192.168.0.1) and granted access to the necessary computers via the shared key. All computers can see the router, but none allow for connection to the internet. One computer has been able to give the feedback that their is an issue with the DNS. Only change in the equipment that I see is that the LED lights on the front of the Ubee D3.o modem have gone from all solid green to all but one which is now a solid blue (the DS light).

    What's my WAN IP address?


    If your PC/Mac is part of a home LAN behind a NAT router, then the above procedures will tell you the private LAN address of the PC/Mac, not the public WAN address allocated to your cable connection. To discover your public WAN address, visit one of these sites:
    Your NAT router might also have configuration pages or programs which will tell you the public WAN address. For instance, for the Linksys routers, send your web browser to http://192.168.1.1/ and click the tab Status:

    blackcode1, exactly what "above procedures will tell you the private LAN address of the PC/Mac"? Exactly which of your links will help when there is no internet access, which is the problem the OP has described?
