I have a iPad
and a wireless printer which i hooked up to my wireless internet. However, when I searched for printers to print to on my iPad
it came up with none. How can I get my iPad to recognize and pick up my wireless printers signal?
Printers need to receive the data in a format that they understand, and that usually requires specific drivers loaded onto computers in order to do that. However, HP has several printers that are made specifically to work with iPods & iPads.
Though you might have some other options. Check out the following links for some info that might work for you as one says you can also print using AirPrint to a non-wireless printer that is plugged into an Apple Airport Express via Ethernet.
