5carface, FYI, please post once. If you need a thread moved, contact a moderator.
Did you visit Knoppix's Documentation to see if they had the answer first?
What kind of network card are you using?
Does it detect the network card?
Do you use private addressing (ie., addressing behind the router)?
Have you tried manually setting an ip address using ifconfig eth0 <ip> mask <subnetmask> as well as ifconfig default gw <gateway address> and then setting the DNS addresses in the /etc/resolv.conf or perhaps tried dhclient command to get dhcp addresses (assuming your router is a dhcp server or that you have one on your network)?

What kind of external network card? The type can be helpful for people to help you.
Do you have a router behind the comcast modem?

That's the model name of the network card? Is this a wireless or wired card? You might need to use a different card if this is a Microsoft specific NIC. I have a feeling that it requires Windows only software and it's very possible that there are no drivers for this NIC.

So it won't work, its wired

well, when you run Knoppix of the CD, it really doesent set up your network configurations because its running on the CD. When you actually install it on the hd, the installation process usually asks you about network configurations and all that near the end of the set up.
I am not sure (new to Linux also) how to setup the network off the CD...

Actually, Knoppix should setup network configurations (usually DHCP works well). I've done Virtual sessions with it using a variety of computers. That said, the fact that the card is USB and that it's a Microsoft specific product makes me think that Knoppix (or any other distrobution) won't work.
Although there might be a possibility if 5carface could provide more detailed information on the card. Perhaps a driver could be found if we knew exactly what type of card it was.
