    Hi all,

    I have my non-wireless HP printer connected to my airport express and, from my laptop I can print fine wirelessly. However, from my iPad I cannot.

    Even though I have an Airport Express do I still need an AirPrinter printer to be able to print docs out of my IPad?

    Cheers

    I believe another thread shows some other ways to print but I found the easiest way was having a printer that has a wireless connection.

    Look for the app called Eprint
    , bacilly u launch the app surf to the site or doc/photo print. Works great with my hp wireless,not the e model. Good luck hopes this helps. Saved me $165.

    You might like to try a piece of software called fingerprint if you have another pc or mac connected to your printer. You get a 7 day trial for free and it worked immediately allowing me to print from an iPad. The s/ware sits on the pc/mac but s visible on the IPad. I've tried a few other options and none worked!

    Not to dilute the thread but is there any Kodak printers that will conform or work with the iPad?

    Here is Apple's list of AirPrint compatible printers. Kodak is not listed, at least not yet.

    iOS: AirPrint 101
