You may have to download an application to your PC as well for these apps to work. Usually the app for the PC is free app if you buy the iPad app.
You can search through the app store for them. A very popular choice (from my readings on these threads) is called Print n Share by Eurosmartz.
This will tell you which printers currently work with AirPrint.

It works with all HP wi-fi printers and some Epsons. Others are patchy, hence the need to check first. iPhone 3GS 32Gb iOS 4.3.1, iPad 2 32Gb 3G iOS 4.3.1 Apple TV 2

Works great for my Mom who only has 3G for internet access. Here's how. (Suggest you update firmware to be sure if you can) Go to a WiFi source. Turn on printer and follow the start up instructions on the display. Log onto WiFi and update to current firmware. Navigate to Wireless and select "Restore to Default Wireless Settings"
In same menu select " Enable Wireless" . This sets up an Ad Hoc computer to computer network. On your iPad go to WiFi and log onto the printers WiFi name.
It will be listed as HPxxxxxxx with a list of numbers. Once logged on open a Doc. or Web page and select print. Select your HP printer which will show up and Print. The first time it may take up to a minuet for some reason. After that it will print almost instantly. Enjoyipad, iOS 4

No it won't, because the original poster has a Dell printer.Mac mini (mid 2010) - 2 GB RAM, Mac OS X (10.6.6), silver mini, blue mini, green shuffle, iTunes 10.1.1, 32GB wifi iPad

I bought printcentro pro (eurosartz) and it works with two hp printers and a Brother printer. The software recognized my canon selphy photo printer too, but I haven' used it yer.

If your printer is on the list of compatible HP Printers - and I think it is - maybe you have to download the latest driver that may be available for the printer. Have you looked into that scenario?

Hi- just, I downloaded the latest and still no luck. I have a WI-FI plus 3G IPAD. Do you think it might help if I turned off the 3G? I am getting so frustrated, I have tried everything that I can find for documentation and it just keep saying No Printer Found. Thanks so much. Annie

To print using AirPrint, the router has to support Boujour - your router may need firmware updates or is simply not compatible, like some/all Belkin routers.
And, this happens on wifi only, not 3G.

Did you read Dank 1956 post above about connecting with 3G? Maybe you could try that if you haven't already done so.
Have you tried rebooting your router, turning off the printer and turning it back on and rebooting your compuer as well? Just reboot everything that you can and then try. Update your iOS to 4.3.3 as well?
You could try turning off the 3G and see if it helps. I have the original iPad and an old Lexmark All-in-One printer and I use a 3rd party app to print from my iPad.
Go to Apple's Airprint Site here...
Click on your printer in the list and it will open to Apple's Store and you can read some of the reviews from people that bought that same printer. Maybe you can get an idea there as to what you can try next.
After that, I would log onto HP's web site and find a trouble shooting section and see what you can find there. I'm sorry but that is about all that I can offer for help.
