Does Time machine serve as a modem for PC?

Wondering if this will replace our existing comcast modem that works as in line for our old pc desk top and wirelessly for for our roku device and other visiting PC users laptops.

    No, the airport extreme can replace a router if you have one, but it can not replace the comcast cable modem - it doesn't have the necessary hardware to connect the cable line. This would be a great addition to your network though. You would plug your cable modem in to the airport extreme, and the airport extreme would share that connection to your desktop via a wired (or wireless) connection, as well as to your roku and visiters via the wifi.
