Thanks for response.
First, it's not just one IOS device and not just one owner / user in this household having that same problem. And, google search on the problem will show many affected by it. How many times are you willing to turn off and on your device (as has been recommended by many) to be able to find a printer for each job? That solution is neither practical nor helpful and does not really work for us.
I found an article in one iphone forum that made several suggestions, but the most critical point made, to me, is that you need a router (which is why I asked if Xfi Gateway is not a router). Once I connected my router back to the Xfi gateway and connected my printer the router Wifi (not Xfi), the printer showed up on our devices faster than the finger could move. That was a relief, but now, we are using two wiFi's instead of one.
So, is there another workaround for Xfi? You have to agree with me that having to reboot your device each time you have to print is not ideal. Thanks.

Airprint does not work well with Xfi. iPhone is connected to the network alright, and the printer may connec for a minute or so, then disappears. It appears the problem is that a router is needed for airprint. Is the Xfinity gateway not acting as a router? (And it must support Bonjour). Is there a work around?
Thanks for any help. I need to be able to rely on Xfi alone, without a router.
