There is also a program called PRINTOPIA - scroll down to find post from paulhinz and a link to it. enter link description here

I am sorry I can't advise any further on how to print from your iPad as I don't own one - maybe someone who does will follow up with some information for you - in the meantime I hope that my links help you.

It depends on the printer. You cannot print to most older printers. However many modern printers permit printing wirelessly by downloading an app or by sending an email to the printer. I couldn't print from iPad until I got a new printer.

The app is specific to the brand of printer. I have an Epson.

PRINTOPIA That is for MAC.

You need to see if the printer supports iPrint.

If you don't have a wireless printer you can email the image or whatever as an attachment to yourself & print it via your wired printer. Most new printers have wireless capability so it wont be an issue forever.

It's not purely wireless capability on a printer but it does have to have iprint or eprint.
