Printing, airprint, 3801hgv


Printing, airprint, 3801hgv

I have a 2wire 3801hgv gateway, an HP6510 printer and an iPad 3rd generation.


My PCs have no problem printing wirelessly to the 6510. When I try to print from my iPad it says, "Printer Offline" ... which it is not. Some internet searches say that the router will not support "Bonjour", common to Apple products to search networks, or something like that. 


Anyone with any experience with this problem?

Keep in mind Bonjour is Apple's answer to WPS so you can configure the settings manually.

OK. Being a low tech guy I opted for the offered solution I could best handle. 


I shut off the gateway ... not reset but shut off. Same with the printer and the iPad.


After a few minutes I turned on the gateway and allowed it to cycle thru the startup. Then the printer. Then the iPad.


Walla. It worked. iPad now prints on the HP 6510.
