Wirelessly print from 1st gen iPad

Posted 22 January 2017 - 05:27 AM

Current equipment:
1. iPad Air (1st Gen) - non jailbroken
2. HP LaserJet P3005 (non wireless capabilities)
3. BT Home Hub 5
4. Windows 10 desktop computer

(I have no Apple products apart from the iPad)

My question is this, is there any way I can connect my iPad to my printer wirelessly through, maybe my router? Are there any apps that can achieve this on the apple store? I would like to use the ipad to wirelessly print documents etc straight, rather then having to send them to my laptop/computer first then printing.

Thanks for any answers!

What does non jailbroken mean?

Presumably your printer has WiFi capabilities? Turn on the WiFi and discover it on your ipad.

I don't have an ipad but a quick search tells me you then press Share with something you want to print.

Probably not. They do have HP printers that are given email addresses for printing purposes, but barring that I don't think so.

Search up 'wireless print server' on amazon. There are devices that do this.
