The Comcast installer was a Linux user himself and told me that there are some loops that look for Linux and ban them. This was about 3 years ago, so if you connected a Windows box or a router to the Cable Router they both worked. But connecting a Linux box would not work and the installer told me that Comcast@home blocked Linux on some of their loops.
For instance the West Chester Loop had no problem with Linux while the Wilmington and Coatsville Loops would not allow a direct connection of a Linux Firewall.
