Question

Now to configure to Ipad2

The provided instructions from HP are poor as far as how to set up this printer with an Ipad2. When I go to settings it recognizes the 3052 printer, but what are the settings needed to actually connect it to the printer?
Many Thanks!

Go into settings.
Turn on wifi.
Under choose a network, click on the network you are accessing.
Go to your photos and then your print option in upper right hand corner.
Click on print.
Printer options pops up and if you don't see the printer listed, click on your printer options there in the window. You will then see your printer name.
Click on that printer's name.
Now click on printer options again.
You should now be able to print. It will print in a 4x6 size.

No, it needs electricity just like a desktop pc. Even a desktop pc has a power supply, all that means is it has a way to get power. The power supply of a computer is the part of the computer that simply "supplies" it with power.

The difference between a desktop pc and laptop is a laptop also has a battery. So if they made a printer with a battery, then your question would be valid.

You can print wirelessly from your laptop. When you install the printer, you can select "wireless" or "USB wired" connection. You cannot do both at the same time.
