A Comcast "router"???

Are you sure it's a router and not a "Cable Modem"?

I just got the exact same brand & model # as the cable modem I was renting from Comcast. Found it on Ebay for about $20. After about 6 months, I was saving money. :-)

I think it is a cable modem.  Cable going in.  RJ45 jacks and cables going out.

That's what I figured.

Mine was a Motorola SB5100. Ebay has them nowdays for about $20. Yours, of course, could be a different brand/model.

Once I get the new cable modem, how do I split off and connect one part to the tv card on my PC so that I can record to my hard drive?
