No internet connection when connecting to Comcast Cable Modem

Hello All,

I'm having an issue connecting a Dell Inspiron 5100
laptop running Win2K3 server to a Comcast Cable Modem
connection. Network connection properties are set to
automatically obtain an IP address, as well as
automatically retrieve DNS information, but when I attempt
to view a site with Internet Explorer, it won't connect to
the website. I have tried to match the configuration to
an existing laptop (running Windows 2000 Professional) but
I'm probably missing something. Any help or information
would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

what type of router are you using to attach to the carrier.
I have often seen the setup in the router require the userid and password to
log on to the system (i.e. it's not in the workstation).
