You don't need to use a secondary router to use "air printing" for the network to use the 2.4 & 5G wifi on the Quantum Gateway G1100. You need only have your printer assigned an IP address that the devices can see in order to print.

most newer printers have the ability to be set up in wifi mode. Look at your printer documentation. I use 2 printers on my network. An Epson 4500 and a Canon Pixima which work via AirPrint (wifi) you need only set the computers to use wifi for printing.
