Getting Ipad 2 to recognise canon mx455 as an air printer

  Sweep57 09:58 07 Mar 2014

I have set up the printer a Canon Pixma Mx455 so that when I turn it on the blue light is on.

I got to this point ok having loaded the setup disk which came with the printer to my old laptop.

I was unable to complete the link between the laptop and the printer because the laptop no longer works on line and I was wondering whether this in itself would have prevented the printer from being linked to my specific Wi Fi hub.

I still thought however that I would be able to print from my Ipad 2.............. I checked on line and the Canon MX455 is classified as an Airprinter"........however when I try to print the Ipad does not find any Airprinters.

I don't use a Canon with iPad. I assume that your printer is connected to the router by wifi and it has a good connection.

Does this help How to print using Apple Air Print.

Is the laptop connected to the router by cable?
