    I want to print fom my iPad 2

    I have had my iPad for about 3 months and don't know how I did without it previously. I want to be able to print and need some help. I read about Printopia as a solution but I am a PC user so a eliminates that - I think? I also read there are new printers that are made to be set as an air printer but that requires another purchase. I am wireless at home and office and want to know if I can set up a current printer to print from e iPad. A litte help please.

    You can print using your printer connected to a PC

    'fingerprint' is a program for the pc. With the pc on and a connected printer you can then use the print function on the iPad. note that both pc and iPad must be on the same wifi connection. And it only costs about $7 !!!

    Hello to the OP - welcome to the forum!

    Just a second for FingerPrint - program resides on your computer connected to your printer; as stated both have to be on the same Wi-Fi network - information HERE at their website - a few trial is available. The program has worked fine at home w/ my Canon (non AirPrint) printer both before and after my 5.x iOS upgrade.

    BTW - the link previously given is worth reading, if not already done - good luck and let us know your solution(s)!

    Well, NOT true - the OP never mentioned which printer he/she owns and has not returned to this thread, so who knows what has been done?

    To print w/o additonal effort from an iPad to a printer, the latter has to be AirPrint compatible - this is not known according to the OP?

    More information is needed and also a response from the OP - this is a easy choice but depends on the type of printer owned -

    I downloaded Fingerprint and was successful one time and one time only printing to HP8200 which is USB connected to the PC on which Fingerprint resides. I have not been successful beyond that first print. Since that time the iPad print function tells me it is sending the print job but nothing happens. I have uninstalled and reinstalled Fingerprint with no different results.
