    For Comcast cable..you pretty much only need the Modem and then the wireless router and that's it. What modem are you using?

    If you connect the cable from the wall directly to your computer, can you access the Internet? Com cast is cable, not DSL. You would need a Comcast modem hooked up to that cable.
