    My Brother HL-3040CN printer only has an ethernet connector for network printing (as well as a usb port). If I wish to print wirelessly is there an adaptor or a wireless hub that I can plug it into with the cable?

    I'm asking this because I've read the iPad doesn't have any means of connecting it to a printer with a cable. I won't buy an iPad now but maybe next year.


    EDIT: Would an Airport Express do the job?

    If you have a wireless router, just connect it to that.

    Edit: But an Express would work if you do not want to place it near the router. However, if it's a multi-function printer (ie, scanning), those extra functions will not work.
