iPads and Printing

If you are having trouble printing on your iPad – AND other students **can** print – here are some things to check:

Step One:

Correct printer?

Are you printing to the correct printer? A surprising number of students stand by one printer while their documents is being printed in the other building.

Step Two:

Bump your Network.

This is more than just turning your Wi-Fi off and then on. You want your iPad to “forget” the MDS-student network, then reconnect it. This often clears the decks and allows your ipad to find the printer.

My iPad isn’t working – no email, no printing, no web surfing

Problem: If your iPad all of a sudden stops working oncampus, it is most likely because your subscription to the network has expired.

It MUST be renewed every 30 days.

Symptoms: no email access, can’t print, can’t surf the web, but the wireless icon is still active.


  • Open up a web browser window.
  • Surf to an OFF-CAMPUS website you’ve never visited before. Perhaps HamSandwichTees.com,  or ShadowSoundStudio.com, or Macon.com… well, you get the idea. It MUST be off-campus, and MUST be somewhere you’ve never visited before.
  •  You SHOULD see the “login here” splash screen.
