    Question How do I find wi- fi printer

    I upgraded to iOS 4.2 on iPad and love it. Everything seems to work as advertised except for Air Print. I have a printer on Wi-Fi. Can see it on my Mac on same WiFi network. iPad is set to same network through Settings App. Why can't I see it in Print from Safari or Mail?

    Do you have one of the handful of HP printers that support AirPrint? If not, that's your problem.

    Angry No, I have an Epsom 260C2. WiFi connection.

    Thought any WiFi printer would work - didn't realize Apple was partner with HP. Thanks for help.

    I have a HP B209A printer. Is my printer one of the ones that connect? I tried to print something off the ipad and it says it cannot detect a printer.Do I have to turn something on in the ipad to recognize the printer????

    Nope.. AirPrint shall remain something that you only dream about... The link below has a list of the supported HP printers.

    If you cannot find any of those printers on the list you can get around it by getting a printer that has an email address. You just simply email the document to the printer...and voila.....printed.
    I never give up. Snideness and rudeness of any sort WILL be returned in kind.

    I used that link and got my Epson sx600 working fine on my windoz pc only downside is that the pc you do this on has to be on.
    we are all noobs at 1 thing or another but if I can help a fellow noob that's good enough for me.
