Internet is working fine
How do you connect and what happens when you start the /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1 manually ?

Did you see lines like nameserver xx.xx.xx.xx (where ips are your ISP nameservers) in your /etc/resolv.conf ?

try add these lines in /etc/resolv.conf (one server per line, where xx is the IPs) as :
nameserver xx.xx.xx.xx

after doing a whois comcast.net I get :
Domain servers in listed order:
DNS01.JDC01.PA.COMCAST.NET 68.87.96.3
DNS02.JDC01.PA.COMCAST.NET 68.87.96.4
So try to add :
nameserver 68.87.96.3
nameserver 68.87.96.4
in your /etc/resolv.conf and see if it works
