I understand the proprietary stuff from Apple. I just wanted to be able to print using my existing infrastructure.
Tim has pretty much written an entire essay on the topic of AirPrinting, leaving little room to add further information.
The only thing I would like to mention is, that instead of connecting USB-printers to a PC/Mac, they can also be connected directly to a router/access point if these have a USB-slot, thus circumventing the need for an always-on PC.
An Airport Express in conjunction with the iPad is a great device, as the APE shares the USB-printer as well as speakers in the wireless network. I have yet to figure out how to print from my laptop, but the iPad prints perfectly via Print'n'Share to a USB-printer connected to the APE.
I have an airport express with a cannon ip4300 attached via USB to it. I print wirelessly from my mac, but have no idea how to achieve this on my iPad. Any chance of a step by step guide for an idiot?!Quote:
