Which make of laptop?  You should be able to match with some characters of the computer name.  One of my desktops actually has the word "DESKTOP" in the Host Name.

Re: Not sure what device is which.

"You can view more information by seleting the device from the Devices list and then Device Details. Device Details will provide you information around the Host Name, Manufacturer, MAC Address, IP Address and Connection Type. The four digits are the last four of the actual device's MAC address.

 

The best way to identify the devices showing in your list of devices in xFi is by comparing the MAC Address as this is what we use to identify unique devices on our end. For more details, please see the FAQ section "I don't recognize the names of all the devices listed. How can I identify them?" https://www.xfinity.com/support/articles/xfinity-xfi-faqs"
