Totally at random I came across this today. It may be old news to some, but it's new to me. And I don't like it.
If you have an Xfinity modem with built in Wifi, it may be offering a free hotspot to anyone who comes along. In theory, this is great for when you have company over and don't want to hand out your password 50 times, give access to your local network, or you believe in sharing everything.
Not me. I can be a greedy prick some times.
Now, granted, people who want to use the hotspot need to already be Xfinity customers and have a special app. But that's beside the point. My pipes are mine damn it!
To disable it you can either call customer support, or follow the steps listed here: http://forums.comcast.com/t5/Home-Networking-Router-WiFi/How-to-disable-XFINITY-WiFi-hotspot-on-your-modem/td-p/2144958
Be aware that if you have to reset your Xfinity modem for any reason, you may have re-enabled the hotspot, and need to turn it off again.
Get your own internet you hipster moochers!

My fellow FITES faithful, I bring to you the ugliest possible visage we could place in front of a camera.
FITESCast will be a (hopefully) regularly appearing show in which we talk about the latest PC gaming news, LAN related topics, and what is going on in the community. I plan on changing it up and getting it a little more interesting as I manage to speed up my work flow on the project.
Of course, I wouldn't just make an announcement like this without trying to involve you, our ever loving community! You can absolutely help us with this show, and, in turn, help your self! We need your help in liking the video, making comments on the video, SHARING it is huge, and subscribing to the channel would be awesome! Let us know what content you would like to see. Do you know someone that wants to be part of an interview? Let's make that happen.
How does this help you? Well, it would be great to one day use this channel to do product reviews, but companies will want to know that we reach a large user base before sending us stuff all willy nilly. Those companies that want us to do product reviews can become sponsors at the next big LAN event opening the door to more prizes, and better prizes.
It call also help FITES grow as an organization. Playing with 250 is great, but playing with 350...500? Even better. With your help we can make it happen. So if you like the video be sure to hit the thumbs up. Comment with what you would like to see in the future. Share it with your friends and spread the love.
I'll see you in the next episode!

Long time friends of FITES, and casting team at our last LAN, eXtelevision have put together a campaign to help get two teams across the Atlantic Pond to show those Europeans who has the superior TF2 skills. Let the tailgate begin, grow out your mullet, and start the U-S-A chant.
And then be sure to check out the indiegogo page if you want to make a donation.
