S there any way to print to a non wireless printer?
There are alternatives to AirPrint. For example HP has a feature called ePrint, which effectively gives your printer an email address. You send your files to that email address for printing. Works very well, and obviously, from anywhere you have cell service,
As far as I know, it is not possible to physically connect a printer to the iPad.
You might want to provide some details: 1) Brand/model of the printer; 2) Is the printer AirPrint compatible?; and 3) How & to what is the printer attached, e.g. to a computer via USB? Dave
It is a canon pixma mp250. It is currently connected to my laptop via USB. It has no wireless capabilities. Right now I am sending things from my iPad to my laptop to print. But my new iPad is way lighter than my heavy laptop and I would love to be able to completely make the switch. I'm pretty sure I need to by a printer with wifi, but there is nothing wrong with my current printer. I do a ton of printing for work. I have learned how to save PDF files to my ad so I can bring them into the field and not print, but there are several things I need to print when I'm back at my office.
Have a look at this thread and in particular at Twerppoet's post......hope it helps you
If both laptop and iPad are on the same wifi network, there are apps that will make the printer visible to the tablet. E.g., if you have a Netgear router, Netgear Genie makes any printer emulate AirPrint.

Thanks everyone. I thought I would have to wait until I got a new wifi printer! I look into my options.
Ugh! I've tried everything in the link above, but still can get my ad to see my non wireless printer to print from. I think it might be on the windoze 7 side of things. Any suggestions from the experts?
Should say I can't get my iPad to see printer.
I have an Air print printer and sometimes my iPad won't see it, what I do then is turn off my printer and reset my router, sometimes I need to reset my iPad also before it will work. So try rebooting your PC etc. and see how you go.
In the meantime I've moved your thread to our Help Section where more members will see your thread and may be better able to help you.
