Problem with New Xfinity XB7 (White) Gateway and Printer Connection
Problem with New Xfinity XB7 (White) Gateway.
Comcast/Xfinity delivered a second companion TV box today. They also upgraded my XB6 (Black) Gateway to the newer XB7 (White) model.
While all my devices and apps successfully transitioned to the new gateway, many required re-entering passwords which was annoying but not difficult. However, I was unable to get my Epson printer working. Although the xFi app and gateway management browser (10.0.0.1) shows the printer connected, the printer itself reports a connection error. Neither Xfinity nor Epson support have been able to provide a solution, so tomorrow I will be downgrading back to the Black XB6 model. If you own an Epson printer I do not recommend getting the XB7.
