Background:

 

Have current-generation iPad, iOS 6.  Am trying to print via local Wifi.  Printer is a HP OfficeJet 6600, router is a NetGear N300.

 

iPad gets its Internet from AT&T cellular.  NetGear router is NOT connected to a modem or the Internet, it's being used for local WiFi routing & printing only.

 

 

Problem:

 

When the iPad is connected to Wifi, it can print, but the cellular is lost & it can't access the Internet.  And when the Wifi is disconnected, the cellular is back, but the iPad can't print.  Ugh.

 

This also occurs when using an iPhone 4 with iOS 5.

 

Any suggestions, possible router settings?

 

Thanks in advance.

iPad, iOS 6
