        I changed win10 home desktop name from default offered by windows but my Comcast modem/router still shows old original name. Can that be changed ?

        Have you tried rebooting both pieces of equipment?
        + Turn off the computer, then turn off the modem/router (you may have to unplug the power it it doesn’t have a power on/off button).
        + Wait a couple of minutes.
        + Turn on the modem/router – wait a few minutes until it finishes booting up.
        + Then turn on the computer.
