    Hi Raymond - welcome to the forum! :)

    I'm assuming that you mean a 'Belkin' router? You need to be much more specific about your needs? What type of networking issues are you wanting? You should be able to easily connect your iPad via Wi-Fi to your router? If the latter is a problem, please post back here - plenty of great people on the forum to help! Good luck - :thumbs:

    Hello again Raymond - I'm still not understanding your needs? Your Belkin router seems to be giving you a Wi-Fi connection to the iPad - correct?

    From your last statement above, are you having an issue connecting your PC and/or laptop to the Belkin router? I'm just a little confused here - sorry?

    If all of your devices connect to your router, are you asking how to interface and/or transfer files/etc. between your iPad and your other computers?

    Please try to clarify your questions and issues for a more specific response(s) - :)

    Fine, a more specific request - unfortunately, the iPad is not running a Windows OS and what you may be expecting will not be an easy accomplishment - just the nature of the device and the Apple iOS - so don't expect this to be easy - each of your potential needs may have to be addressed 'one by one'?

    As to printing, I'm assuming that your Canon 'wireless' printer is not Air Print compatible which is Apple's 'easy' wireless printing technology - if so, you will need an app that will allow you to print - for me, I'm using FingerPrint - HERE - works well w/ my Canon Pixma printer; just $10; and requires a program on your computer connected to the printer & a Wi-Fi connection - I've been pleased.

    For 'file transfer', again you'll have to be more specific - what type of files do you want to transfer? Word Office, images, music, videos, etc? There are plenty of wired (sync) and wireless options (Dropbox, iCloud, etc.) that would likely meet your purposes, but again some more information may help others to guide you to specific solutions. Good luck - :)

    I am having a similar issue when trying to print from iPad3. Have a Canon MX822 connected via Cat5 cable to my Linksys router. My pc is connected to the router and can access the printer through the router. When I try to connect to the printer using the Canon iEEP app from my iPad, response is: cannot find printer. I have downloaded Bonjour and installed it on my pc but have had no success. My pc is running windows vista. I have also tried the trial version of Fingerprint with no success either. Can you help?
