    This is a good question as I have not been able to do this either. I think you have to have a Mac printer or AirPrint something like that. I really hope I am wrong as I do not have one.

    If you have a wireless home network, then any wireless printer should work. I have no problems printing with my iPad 2 to my HP Officejet Pro 8600.

    I use the HOME NETWORK of my PC ( Win7 ) which is connected to my HP Printer by USB. No problems except that the PC has to be AWAKE to use the printer.

    Many thanks but the way I print at the moment presents no problem to me.

    OOPS - sorry - :eek: Responded to the wrong poster - assumed that the issue was printing from your iPad wirelessly to your printer?

    Hi I have just connected a H.P. 3070a printer via my router wifi to my iPad2. Printer cost $109 N.Z and took me about 15 mins from out of box to set it up. It worked straight away and now so long as the router and the printer are on then it is a simple two clicks to print. you need to check that the printer clearly states on the box that it supports air print. Some wifi printers may not work.

    Can you explain how you did this?

    I can't print from my iPad ever since I connected the printer through USB to my router. I worked fine when I was wireless.

    Is the printer connected directly to the LCD or to the router?

    What settings did you have to enable (on iPad) to get to this so called home network?

    Thanx
