    Trying to get my son's iPad printer options working and I'm running out of time. Anyone with a quick fix?

    Currently tried this:

    Which worked and I now see the printer on my iPad.
    But when I try to use it, it prompts for User Name and Password.

    In the advanced sharing options I have:
    Turn on network discovery
    Turn on file and printer sharing
    Turn on Public folder sharing
    Turn off password protected sharing

    The user account on the desktop does not have a password and when I look at all the user accounts, there is only the main user and the Guest account.

    Did you try typing Guest without password?

    If that doesn't work, try giving the main user a password, then use that password.

    Guest account wasn't active.
    Haven't updated user password yet.
