Hi,

arsufi2002 :

Welcome to Just Answer.

My name is Fiyaz, I look forward to assisting you today with your question and providing the best answer possible.

arsufi2002 :

You don't need disc to configure printer for ipad3

arsufi2002 :

The only thing is Airprint should support your printer

arsufi2002 :

Apple devices use Airprint feature to communicate with printer. Its easy to configure.

arsufi2002 :

It doesn't require computer intervention. So you can printer directly from ipad 3

arsufi2002 :

Here's the procedure:

arsufi2002 :

Note: Make sure printer has connected to router and is working. Just to confirm you can take a test print from computer

arsufi2002 :

see from Printing with AirPrint

arsufi2002 :

From Printer section, you should choose right printer, then print

arsufi2002 :

If you have difficulty in performing it, please let me know.

arsufi2002 :

waiting for your reply

arsufi2002 :

Thanks

JACUSTOMER-aovbt6ga- : Canon support will charge £109 for the advice. Sorry not happy with that

arsufi2002 :

arsufi2002 :

Printer : You must find yours from the list of printers

arsufi2002 :

IMPORTANT

Some applications do not support AirPrint, and Printer Options may not be displayed in that case. If an application does not let you use printer options, you cannot print from that application.

5. For [1 Copy], tap [+] or [-] to set the number of required copies.

6. For [Duplex Printing], tap [On] to enable double-sided printing or [Off] to disable it.

7. When printing a file that has multiple pages, such as a PDF file, tap [Range] and then select [All Pages] or the range of pages to be printed.


REFERENCE

The printer options differ depending on the application software and printer you are using. Normally, when you tap Print and select a printer, the displayed printer options will include up to the following four options:
  • Printer: Select a printer that can be used in your wireless LAN.
  • Copies: Select the number of print copies.
  • Duplex Printing: When the printer supports double-sided printing, you can select [On] or [Off].
  • Range: The page range can be used only with specific applications and file types (such as PDF files).

8. Tap [Print].
The printer will print according to the specified settings.

arsufi2002 :

Just open any application that you need to print

arsufi2002 :

click print

arsufi2002 :

then follow above procedure

JACUSTOMER-aovbt6ga- : Still says no air print printers found. Do I have to enter the name of my printer when asked for a pass phrase after it has identified the wireless connection? I had entered the wireless password because tg
JACUSTOMER-aovbt6ga- : Thought printer was asking that. It did not recognise router without it.
arsufi2002 :

No, you don't have to enter printer name'

arsufi2002 :

Once ipad has connected to router, it will search for AirPrint supported printer

arsufi2002 :

are you sure Canon is connected to router

arsufi2002 :

Do you able to take print out from computer

You must enter wireless password when it asks for pass phrase

arsufi2002 :

sir, do you get my response

JACUSTOMER-aovbt6ga- : Canon is connected to router and have entered wireless passphrase
JACUSTOMER-aovbt6ga- : at no point have I been asked to enter printer name on my iPad.
arsufi2002 :

sir, it doesn't ask for printer name, Ipad automatically detects printer from lan and displays it on ipad

arsufi2002 :

Only the point is printer must be connected to router

arsufi2002 :

to confirm it, i request you to take a test print from computer. So if print comes we can confirm that printer is connected correctly

arsufi2002 :

hope you get it what i mean

arsufi2002 :

please let me know if you have any query
