I am probably making this more difficult than it will be but I am computer illiterate. I am installing a new CPU. Do I need to do anything to gain access to my comcast connedtion other than just plugging it in?

If your using wireless you will need password if its password protected and should be . If using Ethernet cable just hook up to modem or wireless router port .
If you are connecting the machine directly to the modem you will need to properly powercycle / reset it (the modem).
By resetting the modem, do you mean to use a pen and push it in the hole marked "reset?" I warned you I am alerter. And I do not know what powercycle means.
Power cycling/reset , turn off modem , turn off wireless router , turn off computer . Then restart modem let light settle then turn on router, let light settle then, turn on computer .
Thanks so much. I have done that a million times but never knew what it was called.
Your Welcome Glad I could Help ! Reset can mean reset to factory defaults .
To many terms its like a different language !
Was your issue resolved with the power cycle steps that UHFhd provided?
Yes it was. Thank you.
