Hi guys,

My question is how to print from an iPad to a wired network printer, since we have no chance to buy a printer with a bluetooth or Hi-Fi.

Thank you very much.

    A free way:

    You can use Google's Cloud Print service.  You need a google account and chrome installed on a PC which had the network printer available.  Then you will need the cloud print iOS app from iTunes.

    This will allow you to print emails/attachments from Gmail.

    For a paid app that allows printing to many types of printers without google chrome use PrintCentral:
