    There is an option to print emails but I pad cannot find printer (laptops on same network can) .
    Manual is not helpful in this area.

    Any suggestions please?

    Is your printer in the list of those supported by the iPad? Have a look here...


    Apple - iPad - Print right from your iPad with AirPrint.

    If not, you'll need a third party app - such as PrintCentral - to allow you to print from the iPad. Have a look for it in the App Store.

    The iPad doesn't come with built in printer drivers so you need to find an app that caters for your specific printer. Check out Printopia and Print Central amongst others.

    Also do a Google and a forum search for AirPrint as there are tutorials online for enabling this dependant on your laptops OS. (Believe it was around last November this became an option with the iOS upgrade)

    I followed the information at that link and printing works with my Epson R350 inkjet printer attached to a Windows 7 PC. Otherwise you have to buy a wireless HP printer.
