Larry, I wondered whether the built-in router in the new Comcast modems might have something to do with their rollout of Xfinity Wi-Fi, so thanks for verifying that. I've been using that service some in the past couple of months, since of course my iPod touch doesn't have cellular data capability. I do now have an iPad that has a cell SIM, but I've used XWF on it sometimes, too. Alas, I'm not so altruistic as to be willing to get a Comcast router just to help other people. :-) Besides, judging by all the routers I see advertising SSIDs when I check for wireless signals, I think all my neighbors already have Internet connectivity.
So I think I'll stick with my Linksys router and just pick up a cable modem from Best Buy.
