just purchased airprint printer....was able to connect it wirelessly to both my mac laptop and windows desktop, but ipad2 and iphone are not able to find the airprint printer? Printer is a canon pixma mx432...on the list for airprint

So it must be installed while connecting it with a USB cable. Don't know if that will fix things but AirPrint is supposed to work.
