If you are talking about the "free" XfinityWiFi access, then that may not be possible as you have to enter your account info to authorize it. Do your laptop and printer have USB? Do your printer and laptop support Wi-Fi Direct? (Wi-Fi Direct allows a direct connection between devices without going through a network.)
