Kimayharden, I've tried that, however, the Ipad shows the correct IP and MAC addresses but just won't print except from the Canon App that will only print photos. The Ipad is aggravating and I've worked with computers since 1965, therefore, it should be a breeze for me. The exception is: incompatibility of OS's. Dewhenson777, I've been retired due to Post Polio Syndrome since 1996 and money has become an issue just as physically getting up and down to look up things on my wife's desktop, something I've updated every two years for sometime now and just can go out and purchase a HP printer. Can't find the Iprint App in the Itunes APP store, It's going to take me some time to get use to it as it was a gift from my #2 son because he's known about my inability to get up and down so many times. I would think that Canon would have an app that would print docs, etc from the Ipad and Apple would be considerate enough to have written into their 'general settings OS' a 'Choose Printer' line. I do not want to unlock mine or my wife's personal computer, MS 7x64 OS allowing the Wi-Fi to invade them in order to, on occasion, print one or two docs or emails. Thanks for all the help, you folks are great and quick to respond. Also, I've had print sharing setup with my wife's computer on a hardwired network, something I did about 8 years ago and two printers have sharing is enabled, although hers is an older Canon without Wi-Fi. The Ipad sees my printer but just won't print! I'll look again for the Iprint App and see what I can do today. When I solve the problem, I will let you two know. It seems almost like the Ipad found the printer right away but something is in the Ipad code to 'not see' the Wi-Fi printer one has. Strange! Have a nice weekend.

Not sure what you mean by iPrint app. Is this something that has been recommended? Epson's printer app is called Epson iPrint, but it will not work with a Canon printer.
