Update motherboard chipset drivers (Lan, USB family, Sata, pcie etc).

Depending on what's actually connected to the ethernet, age of mobo, or ethernet card, it's possible you may just need an upgrade. Old equipment won't necessarily be able to use the bandwidth and speeds of updated Comcast traffic.

Also check your splitters. For inet, there should only be 1 in line, that being outside at the main line connection. You can splitter cable TV up plenty, but if you have more than 3-6db drop due to cheap splitters, you'll see serious performance drops too.
