iPhones and iPad have lost our in-home WIFI following reboot of Xfinity router/modem

I recently rebooted our Xfinity router/modem as advised by Comcast in order to take advantage of new software upgrades, increased speeds, etc.

All went well EXCEPT for the fact that after the reboot our iPhones and our iPad can no longer "find" our WIFI.

The unusual thing is that following the reboot of the router/modem, our desktop iMac had no problem whatsoever finding our WIFI, the same with our wireless printer. It also easily found our WIFI.

Only our iPhones and our iPad are unable to find the WIFI in our house following a reboot of the Xfinity router/modem.

Any ideas, folks?

Have you tried a network reset on the iOS devices? (General | Reset | Reset Network Settings)
