    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?

    If it's not a printer in the list it will not be accessible via AirPrint. It may be seen but not be accessible such as my Kodak ESP9. You'll need one of the numerous Apps available that will make your printer usable. Look through the Apps on the AppStore and read the resumes. What you have to print is also a search criteria. Some apps will only print photos, some will add web but very few Apps will do specialized documents but PrintCentral.

    I have an old hp 2110 and just printed a document from Pages using AirPrint. Just follow the instructions on this link on how to set it up:

    That's not the point I was making. My Kodak won't print but my HP does and so does my Brother without the aid of a computer.
    The PC does a good job already so why bother with an incomplete AirPrint? Printing outputs are crap. I really don't want to have a computer "on" to be able to print with the iPad. If I want to cross the road do I need to have my parent with me? I'm 53 fer crying out loud!:D

    Here is a FYI for anyone interested.
    I just purchased the HP Officejet 6500A Plus.

    To get the iPad to work, I had to update the printers firmware.
    Original nonworking firmware: CIP1FN1023BR
    Updated compatable firmware: CIP1FN1048PR

    Step to print from ipad

    Make sure you have the Pages app installed on your iPad.

    Connect the iPad to your computer using the appropriate USB cable.

    Open iTunes, then locate your iPad in the source list and select the Apps tab. Scroll down to access the File Sharing Pane.

    The File Sharing Pane is a centralized location where you can manage the transfer of documents to and from your iPad. To print, transfer the desired document from the iPad to the Mac's hard drive. Then simply open and print using a device connected to that Mac or a device on the Mac's network.

    Alternatively, e-mail yourself any documents you want to print, then open them on a Mac with printer access and print from there.

    I am able to print from my iPad on my WiFi network on Printopia. Easy as anything just downloaded the demo onto my Mac and it worked great. They give a free 7 day trial, my printer is an HP 6400 series. If you like the software it is only $10 and will also print from your iPhone 4.

    All I had to do was hit print.

    I was surprised that I didn't have to set up anything on our new HP Officejet 6500A to print from iPad. My husband bought the HP as a cheap stopgap while we were moving from another state and our normal printer was on its way. We weren't even planning to print anything from our iPads. I just hit print to see if anything would come out, and it did, lol.

    Q: I am probably notposting this correctly, but if I have a wireless AIO brother printer will the pages App help me be able to communicate with my network? Any suggestion woukd be greatly appreciated. It took me 3 hours to remove my encryption and get the printer hooked up with my network - which was huge for me btw

    Is this something so easy, I should be ashamed? I tried to print an email from my mail app and it will not even populate my router network - probably something or sme things I fail to understand.

    Any comments - even mean ones would be appreciated. My 10 year old thinks I can't print from this ipad2 but certainly - i should be able too.

    Wi-Fi

    I have a HP LaserJet P1102w printer and a new iPad. I can print to the printer wirelessly if I disconnect from our 'Wireless Access Point' and connect to HP Printer via Wi-Fi and then go to 'Printer'. Then I see the printer and print to it.

    Is there a way to connect to it via wireless through the printer option and not have to disconnect from our 'Wireless Access Point'?

    It would be nice to stay connected to the internet through the 'Wireless Access Point' and to HP Printer at the same time.

    I would appreciate any comments or ideas.
