    You will need the printer to be connected to the same wifi network as the iPad

    I use Active Print app. Excellent. Allows you to use your printer.

    There should be instructions with your AirPrint printer on how to connect it to your wi-fi network without needing a computer. If they are not in the box, visit the manufacturer's site and look in support.

    Don't know what kind of printer, but I just installed a HP 8600 and it did not need a computer to set up. it will go thru looking for the network and you will have to input the network key and BAM its on your network , well that worked for me.
    hope this helps
