    Airprint help

    Since updating to itunes 10.1 final and ios 4.2.1 final, I cannot print via my network. I tried to install manually, I tried to use different "airprint activators" but none of them work. Even my iPad crashes when I try printing from pages.

    It worked with itunes 10.1 beta 2 and ios 4.2 beta 3. Is there a way I can permanently use those installs instead of the final versions?
    In itunes 10.1 beta 2 there was actually a section where you could enable airprint and it worked.

    Any ideas?

    If you have a pc then download AirPrint. Download link is:

    Then just start it. And you will have to share your printer on your home network. And your iPad should find your printer. If your on a Mac, then disregard everything I just said.

    That's exactly what I did before.
    So my iPad can see the printer, but when I hit print in safari, I don't get a printout, and if I try it in pages, the app actually crashes.

    Mine shows the printer, but asks for a name and password for printer. I have no idea where it gets this. There is no password on printer that I know of.

    The user name/password AirPrint is asking for is actually whatever your login is for the computer the printer is attached to.

    I sure hope this isn't Apple's final answer to printing from the iPad. My old Windows 3.1 machine had better printing support than this solution provides.

    The problem is I don't use passwords on my computers so there is none. I did go to "Printer" and check sharing with out a pass word, thought that would fix it. Still no work.

    just enable a guest account on your computer and the password popup will go away.

    I had this, too, while I ran all beta versions of iTunes and iOs 4.x.
    Just enter the computer name (the name of your main data folder in windows) and leave the password empty. That's what I did.

    But ever since I upgraded to the final versions, I can see and select my printer on the iPad, but I cannot print anything. Well, iPad tells me it's done, but my printer doesn't print.

    I have a little different problem with Air Print and cannot find the answer. Prior to Air Print I installed a App called Print Magic. It recognized my printer right away but with Air Print it does not recognize the printer. Anyone have a solution?

    so you're saying that you enabled AirPrint and not print magic can't find the printer? Or just since the upgrade Printmagic can't find the printer?
