I have the basic comcast internet modem. My grandmother bought a Belkin wireless router, and i need to figure out how to connect it to the modem. It only came with one ethernet cable, and my modem's ethernet cable is connected to my computer. There's only one spot for an ethernet cable on the modem.. help?

Setup Belkin Wireless Router with Comcast Modem:

There is no reason to stress about setting up your Belkin wireless router to work with your Comcast Internet service.

The process will only take a couple of minutes and all you will need is a set of networking cables.

  1. The process is similar to connecting any home-level router to any ISP.
  2. First of all, remove the power cable from the rear of your Comcast cable modem and plug the ethernet cable into the "Internet" port on the modem. Insert the other end of the cable into the "Internet" port on the rear of the Belkin wireless router.
  3. Plug the router's power supply into a nearby wall outlet.
  4. Plug in the power cord for the Comcast modem.
  5. Insert the Belkin Setup CD included with the router into your computer's disc drive. Wait for the Setup Wizard to launch.
  6. Click "Setup" in the window that appears.
  7. Type in the SSID and Password for the router into the fields provided.
  8. You can find this information on the Network Information Card attached to the side of the router. Click "Next" to set up the Belkin router with your Comcast Internet service.
  9. A "Success" message appears once the process is complete.
