    I am not at all computer literate and would appreciate some help.I have an IPad 2 and have recently started listing
    on eBay.I would like to be able to use my IPad 2 to print postage so I can lessen my shipping charges.We don't have a home computer, just my IPad.We have a Lexmark and an HP printer.Would either of these work with my IPad?Thank you in advance for your help...and please remember my limited computer knowledge in answering.Thanks again!

    If they do have airprint it might work, but I guess they don't. In that case it will not work without a computer.

    If your printer is wireless capable then you can no problem.

    It will only work through your wireless network. It connects via router. I use Linksys.

    I use a Time Capsule as my wireless router and network drive. My HP Office Jet 6000 is connected to it via a network cable. This printer came out just before the AirPrint 6500 model. I print most of the time with PrintShare Pro from my iPad. I figure I will upgrade my printer when most of the apps I use can use AirPrint, right now only a couple do.

    If you are going to buy a new printer, make sure it supports AirPrint.
