Printer Pro, I use it to connect to my wired printer at work.
Yes, Printer Pro is excellent!
I've been using Fingerprint on my PC from another Post where Twerppoet recommended it before. Works great with my Ipad. Worth the money. Just have to have the Computer on to use it, like he said. My printer is not a wireless printer.
I have Netgear Genie installed on my Mac and can print to my networked printer but only photos. No other printing from pages or email work. Any ideas?
I ran into this problem after I purchased my iPad1 in December 2010 when I found out that I needed a WiFi capable printer (I have a Lexmark C500 laser which is USB) .
I found an application called Fingerprint which is made by a company called Collobos Software (www.collobos.com) and it works great. You download the application and install it on your computer and follow configuration instructions. Once installed and configured, your iPad will recognize it and you'll be able to print. Just remember, both your computer and printer must be running in order to be able to print.
I hoped that this thread might have been the answer to our problem, but so far no luck.
My wife has just bought an iPad 3, my PC is Windows XP updated to SP3, and I have loaded Fingerprint. My PC and printer are both on and Fingerprint is running. However when we try to print the iPad cannot find any printers.
My 1st guess is that the PC has to be connected Wirelessly to the router rather than by Ethernet cable which mine is. Is this the cause of my problem?
2nd guess is that there is something more complicated to do with Workgroups that needs to be set up correctly.
That is probably it. AirPrint is a wireless protocol. In ordered to emulate it the computer needs to be wireless. It won't be able to do it second hand through a router.Originally Posted by baxlobs
If your router is a Netgear router: Some NetGear router models support NetGear Genie, which will add AirPrint support for printers on your network. If the printer is not wireless, it must be shared on the network, and the computer it is connected to must be on.
The difference here is that the Netgear router becomes the AirPrint server, not the computer.
Many thanks, I will have to look into changing to a wireless connection. The router is a BT HomeHub, so can't do the Netgear trick.
