New Router - Linksys AC 1750 EA 6500
Going crazy trying to install this new router. I have followed instructions 100 times and done every kind of reset to the modem imagainable short of putting it in the freezer for 30 minutes. Hold down reset for 15+ seconds with it on, with it off, with cable in and cable out, let it sit forever unplugged but to no avail - what looks to be a very easy setup wizard from Linksys will not find the router. I must not be resetting the modem because I can pop my old n router right back on and everything works the old way. HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Modem is SMC type from ComcastBiz

Welcome to the forum.

It appears as your new Linksys router is retaining its LAN IP setting and will not accept Comcast IP-Gateway's dhcp.
Query though, have you try manually setting LAN IP to your Linksys router with IP-Gateway's dhcp?
If you have not this approach may assist in this issue.
