ipad and iphone 4 not finding printer via Airprint

Hi I have an Ipad and Iphone 4 both on 4.2.1 . I have a new photosmart d110 printer and when I try to print  the devices do not find the printer.  The printer is hooked up to a windows 7 pc via a usb connection. Is this the reason it won't print via airprint. Or am I doint something wrong. My router is a linksys using earthlink dsl service.   Thanks for any help

Your printer needs to be connected to your wireless network. Connecting it via USB to your PC will not work directly with AirPrint.

Also, please make sure your Photosmart D110 has the latest firmware update.  Out of the box the printer is not AirPrint compatible and it requires the firmware update that you  can initiate from the printer's front panel.

Re: ipad and iphone 4 not finding printer via Airprint

If you are sure that you have the latest B110 firmware and that you have the printer and the iOS device on the same Wifi network then your problem is most likely in the wifi router you are using. Some older routers do not correctly handle multi-cast packets and these form the basis for Bonjour. Bonjour is the discovery protocol used when you print from iOS. What type of router are you using?

First thing you will want to do is to update your firmware. You can do this from the printer's front panel.

I have a HP  D110a which when I first set it up two days ago I was able to print from my ipad 2. Today the ipad can not find the printer.  What do I do?
