    Ummm, have you bothered to call tech support? It can be anything. It may be a problem with your modem, NIC, cables, or they could have an outage in your area right now. Call them up and on the phone itll give you options to select what you want over the phone. Select high speed internet, then select tech support, (it will walk you through it on the phone). Then tell the dude...Or girl on tech support about it. We cant fix a problem when it has to do with your ISP making repairs, or upgrading, or having an outage. Dont assume I think Im a know it all, I have the same ISP and when that happens, its usually repairs, upgrades, or an outage.

    Ok what Operating system. If you know how to get to the command prompt, it should be start programs hen Comman prompt for pre windows XP and start programs accessories for Windows XP.

    Go to the command prompt and type this in ping www.yahoo.com
    hopefully i should say something like Reply from xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx ttl 128, etc etc. IF that doesnt do anything, then type in ipconfig, and post what it says here.

    Are you on a network or directly connected to the modem?

    Sorry. Couldn't help myself. Open up Start Menu->Settings->Network and Dial Up Connections->Local Area Connextion(x). Then open up the properties tab and tell us what you see. Then maybe we can help you some. Cheyenne's suggestion would help too, but since you obviously have an active connection right now, it will ping Yahoo! just fine.

    You are worried about a subnet mask? *Smacking forehead* No one here is going to take the time to convert your subnet mask into binary to...Oh wait your not on a network besides the cable connection, they couldn't do much anyway.

    Now, close that damned command prompt, Unplug your modem, count 60 seconds, plug it back in, reboot, if that doesnt fix it, call comcast, you may have an outage in your area like I said ohhhh 5 posts or so ago.

    We can know nothing about your IP with your subnet but thats not important. yours should look something similiar to this, but of course different IP's.
