to print on a printer from an ios device 1 of following things needs to be present
1. the printer support the generic printing interface called airprint
2. the printing is don using a printing app (this is what peope call printer driver on computers) these can be downloaded from the app store if the printer maker makes one most of the times these are free
3. some 3th party printing apps make money on supporting printing to a long range of printers which the makers didn't bother to make a printing app for
4. install netgear genie it works when your computer is turned on and running the software http://www.netgear.com/landing/genie/default.aspx
