    Extreme newbie here. I have a wireless HP printer. I do I print from my iPad? In other words, can the iPad recognize my HP wireless printer?
    Thanks.

    You must have the updated 4.2.1 IOS on your Ipad
    Select number of HP printers with the E print feature
    Wifi connection
    Pair up
    Print.

    Just because the printer is wireless it may not have the E print feature.

    I just looked, and my HP printer is not Airprint capable, at least not directly. I don't understand. Why are my other computers able to connect?

    If u spend 10 bucks it's very easy to print webpages and emails if u want to create and print documents just spend another 10 bucks and buy pages app then email to yourself and open your email within the print central app on your iPad and hit print..Very simple I've tried the air print hack for windows and it was a headache!

    I have an HP 110 from Best Buy. Brought it home and plugged it in and I was on. I can even email my printer from anywhere. It's touch screen also. Paid 70 for it before Christmas. Prints directly from my iPad.

    I have an AirPort router. If I plug the printer into the AirPort via USA, will the iPad then recognize the printer?
