I have a 3GS iPhone that allows me to use AirPrint without any trouble ( I haven't updated the software on it), but none of the other devices, iPhone 4, iPod 3, new iPad, allow me to use AirPrint, error No AirPrint printers found.


It's a foregone conclusion that the printer is AirPrint compatible, it works on the one device without issue.


I've tried resetting the printer, setting it up wirelessly, installing third party AirPrint software on the pc. I've checked to see if it can be found on the network using epsons printer finder app, everything is as expected. I've also updated iTunes on the pc, so it's the latest revision, and synced the pad with it ( I thought there may be an authorisation issue)


Nothing that I've tried has worked, the old iPhone still prints to the printer but no other devices will.. I am tearing what little remains of my hair out trying to resolve this :(

iPad Wi-Fi + 4G, iOS 5.1

    It may be as simple as rebooting the router, and letting it find your devices again.  Try that.

    I have really never heard of a model that was AirPrint not working with ios5.1. Really strange, as that will mess up a lot of folks.


    What make and model printer are you talking about?  I would like to poke around a little.

    I'm having the same issue, it is very frustrating!!! I'm using the iPhone 4s and the iPad 2 and none of my devices are detecting my printer, good thing a read this because I was about to call HP and... Well let's just say that I didn't plan on having a friendly conversation with them!!

    Same issue here my iPhone 4S (OS 5.1.1) finds the airplay printer HP LaserJet CP1025nw but my New iPad (OS 5.1.1) don't, I've rebooted the router but still the problem remains any ideas?
