N600 cable modem router c3700v2, strange exterior access points? Is this a security issue?

Hi! Please forgive the nontechnical language here, I'm a college student and this is my first router.... a few days ago I started noticing connectivity issues, I ignored it, thinking it was just one of those things, than yesterday I saw my wifi... access channels had been replaced with suspiciously named ones. Does this mean someone is spying on me or using my wifi? Help me Obi Wan Kenobi, you're my only hope!

Thanks in advance, a photo of the mysterious channels is attached
Model: C3700|N600 Cable Gateway Docsis 3.0

Looks like you have other wifi neighbors near by you is all. 

 

Someone has a Netgear and D-Link extenders running. Nothing to worry about. 


My Setup (Cable 900Mbps/50Mbps)>CAX80>Orbi RBK50 v2.5.1.16(Router Mode)
Additional NG HW: C7800/CM1100/CM1200, Orbi CBK40, Orbi RBK50/RBK853, R7800, R7960P, EX7500/EX7700, XR450 and WNHDE111
