Bulk up the iPad with gigabytes of unnecessary, poorly written drivers that cause slowness and instability? No thanks.Still no all encompassing print function for any printer on your wireless network. I have a common brother wifi laser printer but NOOOO I can't print to it from the iPad. Terrible.
What's really bothersome to me is that there is no way to print directly from the iPad to printers that are connected via USB to an Airport Express. It seems like they also have no intention of ever fixing it too as this issue has been around since the iPad came out. I imagine they want to limit functionality like this so they can keep the iPad a separate device from the MBA, MBP, and iMac lineups. Otherwise, it may cannibalize the sales of full-fledged computers, particularly with the iPads price point so much lower than even entry level prices into the computer lineup.

Drivers are exactly what causes many of the problems that plague PC's. It is to the iPad's benefit that it avoids this altogether.
Driver-less printing is the future and I applaud Apple for forcing the issue. And if you don't want to buy a new printer check out Printopia for Mac or Fingerprint for Windows.
This will work if your printer is hooked up to a PC:What program? I only have wifi printer
Thanks for reply. Do these work for selecting print range?This will work if your printer is hooked up to a PC:
Work for print range and draft quality selection?
re read the post then?I'm obviously missing something.
I can print from my iPad 2. I have an Epson Stylus NX530 wireless printer. In fact, it is easier to print 2 sided from the iPad than from my MBP - one click for 2 sided printing.
I don't understand the problem...
