Re: ipad w/hp2540 printer

Hello jamye,


Welcome to the HP Support forums.  I understand that you would like to setup your new Deskjet 2540 using your iPad.


We will need to use the Wireless Direct feature of your printer to open the Embedded Web Server (EWS) for the printer to connect it to your wireless network.  You can find the instructions on page 55 of your User Guide and the instructions are straight-forward. Once you have accessed the EWS please run the Wireless Setup Wizard which should be found under the Network tab.
