    Hello,
    I am an artist from Brasil, glad to become a part of the group.
    I just bought an airport express router, and connected it to my Epson printer.
    The apple computers in the net had no trouble accessing the printer,
    but my iPad and the PCs didn't have the same luck.
    How should I proceed so my iPad finds the airport printer and the PCs as well?

    Hello Ndopinto - welcome to the forum! :)

    Now I don't own an AirPort Express but I'm assuming that your computers (Mac or PC) are connecting via Wi-Fi, that AirPrint is the wireless technology used to communicate w/ the printer, and that the model of your Epson printer has built-in AirPrint?

    If so, your PCs will likely need a program and/or service that allows them to use AirPrint - CHECK HERE for further details.

    Not sure about the iPad which is able to use AirPrint? For starters, I would suggest that you 'power recycle' the router and also 'Restart' or 'Reset' the iPad - Directions HERE. Please post your results back here and if still having issues then hopefully someone who also owns that router will 'chime in' - good luck!
