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?

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.
