Comcast requiring activation

I thought I would see if anyone else had run across this problem. I tried to setup a friends new Vista Home Premium laptop on a wireless router. The router works fine as I already have a desktop running. My problem is that whenever I start IE, I get a EULA agreement page from Comast that gives me the option to accept or deline the agreement. After accepting it, I get an error page that says that it was unable to activate the residencial service. The service is already activated working fine. Their TV's & internet have been running fine. I'm using a Linksys wireless router (WRT110). The laptop can access the router fine. But for some reason Comcast needs to be activated. I called Comcast & they say that everything is all setup & activated (which I already knew).

Has anyone else run into this problem? I'm not sure if its a Vista or a router problem. The router is working fine with the other PC. The other PC is hardwired to the router.
