Hi, In order to print From Your iPad, make sure that both the printer and the iPad are connected to the same network.


As well, make sure your iPad have iOS 4.2 and above, and your printer have the latest Firmware Update:

  1. On the product control panel, touch the Right Arrow to display the second navigation screen.
  2. Touch Setup, and then touch the Down Arrow to display the Web Services Setup Menu.
