Xfinity wifi app for laptop

Hi, I downloaded ther Xfinity wifi hotspot app and see 15 cablewifi networks and my phone connects to the networks. However, when I use my laptop, those 15 networks show up as spectrum only networks and send me to the spectrum sign in page. I can't sign in since I only have an Xfinity account. I'm confused why my phone says they are cablewifi and I can connect through the app.I am unable to get the Xfinity wifi hotspot on my laptop. I don't see an app or windows download for a laptop. I only see the app on Google play or ios. Is there a way to get access to these hotspots on my laptop through a download?
