If the modem supplied by Comcast allows me to use my tablet in and around the house, then why would I want a router? Is my desktop now wireless? If so, can I move my monitor(TV) into the bedroom without wires?

The router would simply allow both wired and wireless devices to share your internet service if your modem only allows one direct connection. Some modems have a built-in router that already have this functionality for multiple devices. If you connect wirelessly, yours probably does already. You would need to contact Comcast if you are not sure about yours.
