Unable to Print With iPad Apple Unable to Find Solution
I bought an iPad2 last September. Set up Brother HL-2270DW wireless printer. Have network with desktop XP and laptop Win 7. Netgear wireless. Everything worked just fine. I could see printer from iPad and print. Went on extended business trip to multiple states in November. Logged in to several other networks, could see printers and print. When I returned home I could not see a printer, Select Printer, No AirPrint Printers Found. Still the same after all these months.
I have a medical professional friend. Her office is all Mac. Mac desktop, laptop, iPad and AirPort wireless. She can log in with iPad see printer and print. When I log into her wireless my iPad does NOT see a printer. Here's the best part. She can come to my home, log in to my WiFi, see printer and print.
I have been round and round with Apple. They had me change OS from 4.X to 5.1, done that. They told me I need latest driver from Brother, done that. They told me I need AirPrint, they can't get it through their heads that I still can't see printers on all Mac system, which I have easy access to. They had me check WiFi settings, done that. Apple replaced my iPad several months ago. I synced to restore my apps, contacts, notes, etc. No change. I can't see a printer on my wireless or an all Mac wireless. Can't see printer at FedEx Kinkos or anywhere else I have gone. I have tried easily 20 networks.
I have Print n Share Pro. If I import a document or web page I can print but only from within the Print n Share app. BTW, Print n Share sees EVERY printer (4) on my network.
It shouldn't be this difficult. Any suggestions? Thank you.
