    Does anyone know if comcast is incompatible with linksys 54g wireless routers? I have been on the phone for hours and hours with each company and replaced my gateway with a cable modem and router.

    I am not a techie, but understand more than most.

    Everything worked fine with my 802.11b wireless but when I upgraded a few months ago, I would get kicked off teh internet whenever I had more than one computer on teh network at a time. Long story short, I am runnng XP and have 3 computers with 802.11g and one with an 802.11b. I also have a linksys printserver and printing does not work,even though all the lights are on for teh printserver. The wireless icon will also say I am conected but the internet explorer will not connect ot the internet. The icon also shows a changing connectivity leve interms of low, god excellent and also speed from 1.0mbs to

    Changing the channel does not seem to help either.

    Any thoughts?

    I would also just start over with a new product if I knew that would work.

    No, there should be no issue with Linksys and a standard Comcast account. AAMOF, you should be able to reset the router to factory defaults, connect the WAN port to the cable modem with a straight CAT5 patch cable, and be functional. When you're connected to the Internet, do this:

    For 98 or ME, Start, Run, COMMAND to open a DOS window:
    --- or ---
    For 2K or XP, Start, Run, CMD to open a DOS window:

    Type the following command:

    IPCONFIG /ALL

    Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.
    Paste the results in a message here.

    Does it matter which computer I do this ipconfig from? Do you need it from all of them? Or can I copy from teh one that usually works?

    OK here is the IPCONFIG data.

    Also, one of my computers was on the internet because my wife was on her webmail account, but we could not get a website to respond in internet explorer. Very wierd. Also, the connectivity wirelessly seems to come and go. And on my desktop, I get an icon saying I am connected to the wireless network, but teh internet explorer cannot find a web page and comes back saying no conxn to internet.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
