Re: Router Connection Help
When you replace a modem, the new one has to be provisioned before you can get online, at least that's how it was at Comcast. Your modem simply needs to be added to their system, so you can connect. You have to do this with the modem hooked directly to the computer, when you try and get online, it should take you to a registration page. If not, call your ISP. Once it's setup on the system, all you should have to do is unplug the modem, connect the cat5 cable to the router instead of the computer, then power the modem up, let it fully boot, then plug the router in. After this is all done, you will want to get into the router to configure it. You should be online then. I hope you wasn't charged anything from that national chain.
