    Hi

    I'm new to the forum and just wanted to say thanks! I was also having trouble printing to my new Canon MG6250 from my new iPad2...followed your advice, updated the firmware and now it works great.
    Will certainly recommend this forum to my iPad using friends.
    :eek:

    The best printer for the iPad is an hp w eprint. You can printer to your print even if you are away from home!

    I am having problems printing to my HP6500A plus wireless printer from my IPAD2 also. What I have found is that APPLE apparently uses a special protocol called BONJOUR to find and print directly to a compatible wireless printer. This protocol I guess is not supported by all routers. The problem seems to be trying to identify a wireless router that also supports BONJOUR. I have tried calling Cisco support and they are next to useless when I asked for list of compatible routers. Has anyone found such a lust? I can only identify two for sure. One made by Apple and the brand new, just released, Netgear Wireless Extreme. Are there any others that people are using that they have been successful with? Thanks.

    Same problem here! After AT&T U-Verse tech installed the latest version of their router, my IPad 2 won't recognize the HP Photosmart 7510 AirPrint printer with eprint. Haven't called any support yet. Am I going to have to get ATT to install another router?

    Thanks. The info re Bonjour was very helpful. Since no one has posted any alternatives, AT&T gets a call tomorrow. I just hope they can handle this.

    Update: AT&T switched the router for a new one that evidently supports Bonjour. All Apple devices now can access my HP AirPrint printer and print wirelessly. The tech reps were completely in the dark but they did tell me that AT&T was having "difficulty" with Apple devices.

    Thank God I found this thread!

    I took delivery of a brand new Canon MG5350 on the 4th January and having spent a frustrating couple of hours trying to get it to hook up to my iPad 2 I finally found this Forum and this thread - thanks guys, it saved my life! I am very frustrated that I chose the MG5350 because it supports Airprint only to find that it would not do so straight out of the box ..... but all sorted now following the firmware update.I do have one ongoing niggle though - the printer always wants to print from the rear tray when I use Airprint from my iPad 2. I can't see where I can change this. When I print from my iMac, it seems to default to the front paper cassette.Any thoughts?
