    Hi all,

    I've got an issue I'm hoping someone can help sort out. We've got an iPad at work and a non-Air Print printer. The printer is hooked up to our Airport station.

    So today I was poking around the App Store, and noticed that a bunch of apps (Print Bureau, Print Central, etc) claim that you can use them to get the iPad to print to any printer. So far so good!

    Now, my problem: we only have one other computer--a Mac--and I can't install any 3rd party programs onto it. Additionally, it usually goes home with the owner at the end of the day. So, does anyone know of an App Store app that:

    a) Will enable printing from the iPad to a network-supported printer
    b) Doesn't require installing software on another computer
    c) Doesn't require another computer to be on the network during printing

    After reading those app descriptions, I'm not clear if any of them meet all these criteria. Anyone who can solve this is my HERO.

    Is the printer wireless? I think you can only print to a wireless printer from an ipad.

    No, it's attached by USB to the wifi router. I understand that it's not supported natively; I'm wondering if there are apps that get around that limitation.

    Anyone? Or does anyone know if the 4.3 iOS release will allow for network-attached printers?
