I have a remote location where I need a printer but don;t want to set up a lan there. Anyone know if there are any printers that allow you to print ipad to printer no LAN?

You need to setup a wireless network to print from an ipad and the printer has to be air print compatible

You'll have to buy more apple stuff to do that.

most new wireless printers are compatible, there are a couple of third party apps if that doesn't work. You can also email yourself the doc or dropbox type service to get to a desktop that has a printer.

you can use hp's E-print to email an attachment to the printers unique email address at it will auto print.

You don't need a LAN for this but they do both need some sort of internet connection, 3g or otherwise.

Look into google print. Essentially you're using another computer's browser and the printer it's connected to. You may need to save the file you want to print on a Google Drive.

Home all in ones are so cheap now. I bought a used but under warranty HP D1110a which is airprint compatible for $60 on amazon. Replacing the ink cartridges did cost $30 though. So it might be cheaper to get one on sale for $100.
