hook up

I am confused. I have a gateway wireless (tower). I thought it replace the xfinity cable (to tv) box. Are they independent, or does the gateway connect to the cable box?

Gateways provide data and phone service.  Cable Set Top boxes provide TV service.  The cable feed coming into your residence is connected to all of your devices in one way or another and each of these devices provides the dedicated service.
