I had to upgrade my Comcast/Xfinity modem to a wireless variety.  Spent a whole lot of time adjusting device logons to the router.  When I look at my available networks I see DANAKITTY (my new wireless modem) and then I see Cellspot 2.4 and Cellspot 5.  I am confused as to which network I should be connecting to?  Help?  Is my wireless modem also a router?

With comcast, their supplied modems come with a   WIFI  "XFINITY HOTSPOT" .  THe WIFI router part that you have named is your router segment and the others may be a neighbors.  I use my own modem and router so I don't have a hotspot for others to use through my cable connection.  And I don't have to pay their rental fees.
