Re: Connecting I-pad to printer

@Pete51: Then it's not just a matter of getting the iPad connected to the printer but getting the printer connected to the router in the 1st place.

 

Have you followed Connect using WiFi protected setup (WPS) ?

 

If that doesn't work can you do it manually? Does the printer provide a list of WiFi networks it can see to which you can provide a WiFi password?

@Pete51  Have you reset this up on the printer so it connects to the router ? Have you reset this up the connection on your device to the printer ?

Re: Connecting I-pad to printer

Can you see the printer from any other devices, like PCs? Do you see the printer in the Currently Connected Devices list of the router?
