Mine needed an air printer, so I got a HP wireless one and it does it by magic now, from my iPad, iPhone or laptop smile

ideally to print from an ipad or iphone or ipod touch even, you need an airprint enabled printer which is part of the iOS:

if however you don't have an airprint enabled printer or for a simple set-up, you can try various apps such as print n share:

i have an ipad and print from this app my pics of my kids
hope this helps

Thanks Freddie.
The problem is having the laptop on though as none of them are mine.

Ruby - if you have a net gear router you need to download the thingy - I think it's called net gear genie- on to one of the laptops and you don't need a wireless printer. As long as that laptop is on and connected to the router then you can print direct from the iPad.

Thanks. We need a new printer anyway and were going for wireless as we don't use the desktop anymore. We have 5 laptops and an iPad in the house so a wireless would be best.

I'm just fed up with having to email everything I want printed to one of the laptops and then waiting for it to be printed.

If you have a net gear router you don't even need a wireless printer. My laser printer isn't and as long as I tick the box and make it visible on the Thingy then I can print to it.

You do need a laptop or similar running though to do it.

HP ePrint is the app I use, I think it was free. It will locate a wireless printer.

I have a HP photosmartplus wireless printer hth

I send to a wireless printer using a HP ap?

If you have a net gear router you need to download a thingy and then use iprint on the iPad.

On phone so can't link but google net gear iprint should find it.
