DFG  = default gateway
2DNS = primary and secondary  dns server addresses
DHCP = Would be your normal assigned ip address from the router on the
nic card that the comcast router hands out.

So now you pick one ip address the router assigns from it's dhcp address
block and create a static ip configuration for your eth0 nic,  If the
routers dhcp address block is - pick for the ip.

Now eth0 needs a default gateway which is your routers address maybe

Now eth0 needs a primary and secondary DNS entry.  If the isp only has
one then use one else you can use the default gateway address of the
router but not recomended because you are having problems so I think you
need the real dns.

If you log into the router you will see or find the dns entries you need
and the dhcp block that is assigned.
