    printing from directly from Ipad to network printer

    I just bought my ipad and really have not yet turned it on. I want to be able to print from it. The people at the apple store sold me a printer. I really do not need more printers! Is there an app or some way to print from the ipad to my network printer without going through another computer on the network. There are usually no computers on and I would hate to turn one on just to print. Kind of defeats the purpose of the ipad. I looked at printcentral but I think it needs a computer. Fax print and share pro looks like it may work.

    Has anyone done this? What are you using for it.

    Thanks,

    You are correct, it needs a powered-up pc. The only way I have found uo to now is to use a wifi printer such as Epson Workforce. Disappointing, but there you are.

    BTW if you hear of a way to use a network printer, I would be pleased to hear about it.

    Good luck with your iPad...love mine!

    As far as I know, if you use a printer that does not support airprint then you need an app regardless how the printer is networked. If you have a printer that can connect to the router directly you won't need to have a pc turned on. I have an hp 3050A that was easy to set up and connects wirelessly to my D-Link DIR-632 router.
