Hi @tstack, that's a great question! I think it depends on your personal preference. Your Xfinity Wireless Gateway broadcasts two additional network signals (“xfinitywifi” and “XFINITY”), creating an extension of the Xfinity WiFi network right in your home. This service is completely separate from your secure, private home WiFi network and allows guests to sign in and connect without sharing your secure network password. Your Home Hotspot is included with your service at no additional charge. If you prefer to turn yours on or off, here's the easiest way to do so. Check out this link for more information about the Xfinity WiFi Hotspots.


Does that help?
