Re: Wiifi names?

If you are talking about network / band names (SSID's) it's because there are two different WiFi bands. The 2.4 GHz band and the 5.0 GHz band.

Some Comcast gateways have multiple SSID's. The main one for your Internet service, and one or more used for optional services like security systems and wireless TV boxes.
