Extreme newbie here. I have a wireless HP printer. I do I print from my iPad? In other words, can the iPad recognize my HP wireless printer?
Thanks.

You must have the updated 4.2.1 IOS on your Ipad
Select number of HP printers with the E print feature
Wifi connection
Pair up
Print.

If its a new hp printer that does AirPrint, google the list, you just plug it in turn it on connect to wifi and print...mine was so easy to setup it was scary.

I just looked, and my HP printer is not Airprint capable, at least not directly. I don't understand. Why are my other computers able to connect?

If u spend 10 bucks it's very easy to print webpages and emails if u want to create and print documents just spend another 10 bucks and buy pages app then email to yourself and open your email within the print central app on your iPad and hit print..Very simple I've tried the air print hack for windows and it was a headache!

I have an HP 110 from Best Buy. Brought it home and plugged it in and I was on. I can even email my printer from anywhere. It's touch screen also. Paid 70 for it before Christmas. Prints directly from my iPad.

I have an AirPort router. If I plug the printer into the AirPort via USA, will the iPad then recognize the printer?

If it's not a printer in the list it will not be accessible via AirPrint. It may be seen but not be accessible such as my Kodak ESP9. You'll need one of the numerous Apps available that will make your printer usable. Look through the Apps on the AppStore and read the resumes. What you have to print is also a search criteria. Some apps will only print photos, some will add web but very few Apps will do specialized documents but PrintCentral.

I have an old hp 2110 and just printed a document from Pages using AirPrint. Just follow the instructions on this link on how to set it up:

That's not the point I was making. My Kodak won't print but my HP does and so does my Brother without the aid of a computer.
The PC does a good job already so why bother with an incomplete AirPrint? Printing outputs are crap. I really don't want to have a computer "on" to be able to print with the iPad. If I want to cross the road do I need to have my parent with me? I'm 53 fer crying out loud!:D

Here is a FYI for anyone interested.
I just purchased the HP Officejet 6500A Plus.

To get the iPad to work, I had to update the printers firmware.
Original nonworking firmware: CIP1FN1023BR
Updated compatable firmware: CIP1FN1048PR
