Can Ipads print to windows networked printers, or do they need require Airprint compatible printers, or airprint installed on a mac and then print via the mac ?

AirPrint is built into iPads (iOS).  Once you have the Airprint capable printer on the same  network, the iDevice will see it when you go to print.

An alternative is many printers (HP in particular) have an email address embedded in them.  If the printer is installed as a network printer, then you can print from any device, anywhere by sending an email to that address.

Hp use this feature and they call it ePrint as Geisrud mentions. May be easier. Either way you need an eprint or an airprint capable printer.

You can install airprint service on a PC and let the iPad prints via logon to that PC via a designated Guest account. Details are in the link below.

The problem is whether you are the IT and Network admin for your office network.

We just got a new wireless router that has an airprint function, it made our current printer function as an airprint printer. We just had to run an app on our desktop to configure it, it's a netgear WNDR3400v3 marketed as an N600 router.
