Configure Comcast® Modem
How to configure Comcast Modem?
A modem is an electronic device that is used for encoding and decoding of digital information with analog carrier signals for the transmission and reception of signals. Comcast is one among the leading modem manufacturers and suppliers in the world. While configuring a Comcast modem, it is advised to use only the items given by the company including the Ethernet cable, USB cable and installation CD, to make your computer compatible with Comcast. It may take some time to set-up all the components. Cable Internet providers keep a database of accounts allowed to access their resources. The cable company verifies that the MAC address on each modem is attached to an active Internet account before allowing modem access to the Internet. Configuration is the process of associating a specific modem with a valid cable Internet account to enable it to access the network.
