I used to be able to print from my iPad to my hpM1212nf MFP printer but now it says it can't find a printer. I have an Airport Timecapsule router. I have tried updating the firmware on the printer and rebooting the router, printer and iPad. No luck. Please help.

iPad, iOS 5.1

    If it used to work, it still should.sounds like you tried every thing, but run through the list again.

    Reboot the printer

    Reboot the router

    Reboot the pad.

    Pad settings, general, reset, reset network settings.


    Test the printer wifi connection by -from the printer console- check for firware updates.


    Run your hp test page.


    Make sure the printer is not offline, or shut down due to paper jam or ink problem.


    Don't give up.  God luck.

    Glad you got it going.    Will work for months then something will change and you need to do it again.
