I am a little confused. You usually connect an iPod to a router, not a computer. However, if your iMac is connected to the internet via ethernet cable, you can set up your iMac to act as a router, You do that by iMac's System Preferences>Sharing>Internet Sharing. Please explain better, with details, what you are trying to accomplish.
You are not by your self I'm confused also only more so.
Yes I have had my iPad connected to my iMac for some months now but I just got a wi-fi printer and I tried to set it up but failed and thats when the problem started. If there is a tick next to the Network name on the iPad and there are a full set of bars showing signal strength is good, does that mean the iPad is set OK. And therefor the problem is with my iMac settings?
- Reset network settings on the iPad:
Settings>General>Reset Network Settings
- Reset the iPad:
Press and hold the On/Off Sleep/Wake button and the Home
button at the same time for at least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears.
- Power off and then back on the router.
If that still does not work please provide the IP address of the iPad (tap the ">" of the network you think you are connected to and of what you did to try to set up your printer.
