    I have comcast and did not run anything like what was mentioned below. I
    can use any cable modem I want provided I give Comcast the MAC address (and
    a day or two to get it updated in the system).

    Ken,

    You actually have to install software to utilize Comcast's cable network?

    So in your scenario, where you removed the Router installed and reconnected,
    if you add/switch computers behind the router do you have to
    install/reinstall?

    You have no option to use your own cable modem?

    Vote Adelphia, and no I do not work them.
