Internet Connection Type

I am setting up a Linksys BEFSX41 Firewall Router and I don't know the answer to the first question. What type of internet connection does Comcast cable use? DHCP,Static,dynamic, PPPoE?

Thanks. Does Comcast require Domain and Host names?

Re: Internet Connection Type

Nope. You shouldnt need to do anything fancy to use any router type. I just got a new router, a D-Link DGL-4300, I was using a Linksys BEFSR41, both of which took seconds to get connected. Just make sure you set your security up. And change the password, dont keep the default one.
