    My Printer ( HP 2050A ) is connected by USB direct to the PC itself and not the Router. You set the PC ( Windows 7 OS ) to allow HOME NETWORK. iPad connects to Printer and PC ONLY when they are both ACTIVE and not in Hibernation. I didn't set anything on the iPad to enable printing..it just came up as being available.

    Ay yi yi.

    So just so everyone knows, you cannot print from your iPad if you've got your wireless printer connected directly to your router through USB . It works fine if you stay wireless , but once you go direct, you head into "no worky land" from the iPad.

    My canon printer is wireless and the only way I can print photos is using a canon app, works well as does the scanning.

    But it won't print web pages from the iPad due to this AirPrint thing, really beginning to annoy me now to be honest

    You should be able to print anything from your iPad if your printer is wireless . I was good to go until I hard wired.

    I do use my router. But can't print from my iPad anymore because it's no longer "wireless".

    If the PC runs Google Chrome and you enable cloud printing you can actually print your Google Docs from the iPad on each printer however connected to the PC (on, Chrome open) - you can also print when PC is offline, then the job will be executed next time chrome is opened.

    To get around this situation, I bought an Hp printer that offers eprint technology. It's basically a website that you can send your emails to and I reroutes the attachment to your printer. So now I just email documents from the iPad to the site and they print on my printer. That allows me to keep my printer directly connected to my router but still enjoy the printing from my iPad .

    Just another way to "skin this cat"......
