    For a cable modem, go with the Motorola SURFboard SB5100. Best modem out there. Shoot for a target price of $40-$50, that's what they go for when they're on sale. Newegg frequently has deals on them.

    What about this ... Staples has the Belkin Wireless 802.1g (54G) Broadband Router (F5D7230-4)for $24.94

    (Reg. $69.98 - $10 Savings - $35 Mail-in Rebate = $24.94) + sales tax and Free Shipping (for orders over $50)

    PS Bestbuy may have a D-Link Cable Modem for free after rebate if you sign-up for High-speed internet service through them (available only in stores). To see the ad, check out bestbuy.com and click on link in the upper left corner that says "weekly ad", then search keyword "DCM 202"

    I'm assuming he already has high speed cable service. If you don't, let me know your provider and I'll let you know the best deal. I can most likely get you a Motorola modem free plus a lot of incentives for signing up.

    Yeah, the best way to go is to go through Circuit City. Here's your step by step guide.

    1. Go to Circuit City.
    2. Grab the SB5100 Motorola modem and a Comcast self install kit (useful for the high quality RG6 cables and splitter).
    3. Go find someone and tell them you want to activate service.
    4. The deal should be that the modem is around $80 minus mail in rebates which makes it free. They also should give you a $75 CC gift card. The service is $19.99 for 6 months. Not bad...
    5. Take the modem home, plug it in, make sure it syncs up to the cable line, check your computer, and see if you're online. Comcast used to have you manually call in the MAC ID addresses but now they "self provision" the modems. Not sure how it works, but you should be online if your cable line is good once you plug it in.
    6. If your modem isn't going online but is syncing, call them up and ask them to manually provision the modem so that you'll get online. If the modem isn't syncing, it's probably a cable line problem and you'll have to call them if you don't know what you're doing to fix it yourself.
    7. Either way, call them and make sure that they have you on the $19.99 for 6 months rate code, many times they forget about it.

    It comes out to a free Motorola (the best) modem after rebates, a $75 Circuit City gift card for signing up, and a special promotion of $19.99 for 6 months on service. The service is then $42.95. I use Comcast right now and am very happy.

    Good luck, this is the best way to get Comcast. I hook up many clients through this method and the incentives are nice and Circuit City is the best place to go to get it done trouble free. Good luck, post if you have questions.

    There seem to be several deals at BestBuy depending on if you're a Comcast Cable Customer or not. For example, if you're a Comcast Cable customer, it seems you get the rate for the first 6 months at $19.99/mo (Offer expires: 12/31/2004) as well as a $60 gift check. After 6 months, your rate is $42.95/mo.

    Go to this BestBuy WebPage, click on the red "compare plans" button, then provide your phone# and address info to see what's available for you. Once it figures out all the service plans available to you, you can see all the tiny details about the various offers by clicking on the links under the word "plan". You can order your service here too. This Bestbuy Webpage says with Comcast, that you get a D-link high-speed DOCSIS 2.0 cable modem for free after high-speed internet activation...but this and the $60 gift check are online offers that expire on 10/30/2004 so you don't have much time left.

    Of note, when I was calling my local store just to find out about signing up for high-speed Internet through BestBuy, I had a tough time getting any help or info from their sales person. Erik's Circuit City deal may be the better way to go since it's hassle-free dealing with their people.

    Comcast has no contracts. You can cancel at any time without penalty. This is another advantage of Comcast over DSL. Although Comcast is more expensive than DSL in most areas, Comcast's reliability is great and so are the speeds.

    Yeah, I've tried and tested the Circuit City program many times. I find that there are more problems activating through BestBuy. I once went in with someone I was working for and they couldn't activate because their computers were down. That's the last time I went there, because the Circuit City incentives are usually better anyway, and I've never had a hassle with the people there. Just find someone who knows how to activate Comcast plans and you'll have no trouble. Circuit City's rebates are pretty good as well.

    Also, the Motorola modem is much better than the D-Link, so there's another advantage of Circuit City as well.

    It really matters what you are going to use it for. If you're going to be using it for transferring large files from one computer to another on your network, then G (54mbps) is the way to go. If you just want to share your high speed internet, then 11mbps (B speed) is way faster than your Comcast internet is going to go anyway, so it doesn't matter. Linksys and Netgear are two great name brands. Belkin also makes a good router, surprisingly. I have a Belkin 802.11b router at home to get my dad's company laptop online and it does the job. There are frequently Belkin networking deals. I got their 802.11b router and an 802.11b PCMCIA card for $30 AR a while back. I wouldn't recommend any generic wireless routers. If you can get a good price on a Linksys router, then definitely go for it. Linksys is a great brand.

    if you could get comcast, get it. they have a great deal, 6 months for 19.99, plus you get a webcam ..... ok so the webcam aint that great, but its still a good deal. but once the 6 months are up, they start charging you $55.00 unless you use their digital cable which would save you about $45.00 on your cable modem, but then the digital cable is about 50 bucks................ its the best deal that i know of though. and about a wireless router, dont get a netgear, they just generally stink. they always loose connection. i had a B though, maybe a G wouldnt be so bad. but i think you just should play it safe and get a linksys router.
