Is there a download or an app that I need? My printer is set for wireless printing, but my ipad is apparently not finding the printer, so I suppose I need to download AirPrint. Where is it? On the apple site, under features, it tells me all about it, but it fails to tell me how to get it. Any suggestions?


iPad 2, iOS 4.3.1

If you don't have one of the AirPrint enabled printers, download Printopia from their website (purchase) and install it on your Mac.  It will make any printer enabled on your Mac to be available on your network (as long as Mac is online to function as a print server).  It works great for me accessing my HP Color LaserWriter 2600n on the local network.

What make and model is your wireless printer?  As currently its on selected HP printers, the e- models. If you don't have a HP e-printer then you may have to download an airprint activator either the free one or the paid one.

Printopia requires your Mac to be switched on to work. Print n Share will also print to any printer via your Mac or PC but will also print directly to most wireless printers without your computer, and is considerably cheaper.
