John's reply gives you basic setup, but I'm not sure if you have a network, or just a Comcast modem.
If you have an existing network with Internet access thru an ISP, you can add the R700 to your network with a static IP/netmask/def-gw on default VLAN 1, assigned under Configure::Internet.
Test your access from the R700 from Administration::Diagnostics, where you can Ping local and remote targets.
The R700 is a dual-band AP, so you have to configure your WLAN SSID under Configure/Radio 2.4G, and Configure/Radio 5G separately. The common settings can be left at default, and you setup encryption and SSID under Wireless 1 tab and Wireless 9 tab, respectively per radio.
The default SSID settings are None for Local Subnet, and 'Bridge to WAN' for packet forwarding.
If you do not specify a Local Subnet under the SSID, your clients DHCP request will hit the wired network, and need to obtain an address/netmask/gateway from your cable modem/DSL router, or the ISP, depending on your agreement with them. If they only give you one IP, this will not work.
The alternative that doesn't require DHCP from your local router or ISP, is to define a Local Subnet on the AP (Configure::Local Subnets), specify this local subnet under the SSID, with the 'Local Subnet NAT and Route to WAN' packet forwarding option. This is the design John was suggesting, and I wished to provide another description for.
