Comcast can’t tell you

Netgear46 sounds like a wireless network name

Re: possible hack

In general saving data on a laptop does not require networking at all.

 

Modern Windows computers come with MS Edge but you can run whatever browser you want.  (Although I don’t know if IE is still supported.)  I don't use facebook so I can't say anything about that.

 

Netgear46 is just some letters (which also happen to be the name of a well-known company) followed by some numbers. Without context it doesn't mean any more than duffyduck21 or IHearttTesla15.  There's a wi-fi SSID in my neighborhood called: KidsGetOffMyLan.  That just means someone has a sense of humor. 😉
