Hi there,

iOS on your iPad uses Airprint and if you want to print to the printer wirelessly then that printer must be AirPrint enabled.

Or

The printer must be connected either directly to the USB port or to a USB Hub which is connected in turn to the Airport Extreme

Cheers
Liam

Or, instead download and install the handy "Printopia" which will enable any or all of your printers to "AirPrint" from your iPad or iPhone. It's not free ($19.95) but that's a lot less than buying a new printer that is airprint capable.

That worked for me was about to spend 100+ on a wireless Epson AirPrint capable printer.
Excellent chscag. REP given for this.
