I have just bought an Epson XP 305 printer to print from my iPad2. I have a Windows 7 laptop and found I had to connect the printer to it to load the software which I thought was odd since I wanted it to connect to an Apple iPad.
No matter, I have done it. I have put the iPad next to my Virgin wireless router and put the iPad on top of that so I have a strong set up signal. I have spotted the deliberate mistake in the Epson set up instructions and have managed to make the printer talk to the router. I downloaded a voucher and managed to find the printer options page - the iPad has found the printer, I can check ink levels and so on but when I press the Print icon nothing happens and when I go back to Printer Options no printer is listed so the iPad has to search for it again.
I am a Windows user (apologies for strong language) where I would normally set a printer as the default printer, but having looked at and read the iPad manual I do not see this option. Although I have a Windows laptop I use the iPad much more since it is much faster to start up and is more easy to use - except when trying to print!
My iPad2 has not been modified and I am sing iOs 6.1.3
I would be very grateful for any help to solve this problem,
