    Question: Do I have to have a Netgear Router for this to work?

    I have Verizon FIOS w/ their Wireless Router and although the Netgear Genie Program shows my Wireless Printer, my iDevice still can't see it.

    I'm wondering if I need to pull my old Netgear router out of retirement and see if that fixes the problem...

    Also...for those that are suggesting TruPrint; I'm solely using my ip5 and selling my 4S. I need a solution that doesn't require a jailbreak...

    Yes,I agree Truprint is best,Most of offices are using Windows printer sharing.

    They already shook things up with the iPhone 5.

    I have to laugh at some of these because you could do this with android in 2.3 with an app without needing to jailbreak/root the device.

    I've tried truprint to print to my wifi HP printer, but the app wouldn't even detect my printer.

    TruPrint opens AirPrint to different printers.you get a 3-day trial to ensure compatibility with your printers.

    None of that worked with any of my HP Printers. Printing with an iPhone is a joke.

    So this is interesting...

    I have the Netgear Genie program installed and originally thought it didn't work cuz my ip5 doesn't see my printer. I just tried to 'see my printer' using my jailbroken iPad on iOS 5.1.1 and it detected it! *BTW, I don't have TruPrint installed on the iPad*

    Then, I decided to try my wife's ip4S w/ iOS 6 and it doesn't see the printer, either!?!? So it must be an iOS 6 issue; I just wish I knew how to create a workaround...

    --------------
    Ah-ha!!!

    Printopia solved the problem! My ip5 now sees the printer and even more if I choose! It lets me send to my Dropbox Folder on my Mac and then I can access the Document on my phone through the Dropbox.app!!! SWEET...this is way better than AirPrint Activator!

    BTW, iOS 6 is what killed AirPrint for a lot of people. Read several forums verifying this...
