    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.

    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.
