Hi,

I was wondering how to print on my ipod touch. I have my printer hooked up via USB to my airport extreme, and my ipod is hooked up to that as well. Is there a way I can print to that? Or does the printing only work for "wifi printers"?

QUOTE Thanks

I'm not sure that it has to be an actual 'wifi' printer. But, I do know that AirPrint has to be able to find it. As you are probably aware there are only a small number of AirPrint compatible printers at this time, so using another printer requires software help.
I am using Printopia running on my MacMini media center to enable my IOS devices to see my Brother laser printer. It works quite well with the caveat that the host machine (in this case my MacMini) has to be on for it to be active.
There are other choices, but this is the one I am familiar with.

I've always wanted to be smart, handsome and modest. But, I guess I'll have to be satisfied with two out of three . . .
