    When i try to use airprint, the phone sees my printer, but asks me for a username and password. Not sure what they are. Any ideas?

    It's an HP psc1610 and I'm using windows 7.

    Thanks.

    ok i figured it out.

    On windows 7 i have only the one user account with no password,as it is a family computer. When I try to airprint it asks for a username and password. I enter the account name and leave the password blank because there is none. NO LUCK

    If i go into control panel and apply a password for the computer.... VOILA airprint magic.

    I dont want a password on my PC, so..... anyone know what the deal is here?

    its a sounds like a security thing built into IOS now keep in mind that you are using a beta version.

    the programming is designed to look for a password the correct password returns a value of 1 (true) the wrong password returns a value of 0 (false)
    if no input is given there is no statement to access so its defaulted to 0. try just putting a space in for the password. no guarantee though I'm not familiar with the IOS code

    well again its a beta make the pass on your comp a space then you essentially have no pass (but a login in screen :/) and you can have airprint until the official release at least.
