Will having a printer in the USB port of the AirPort Express allow me to print?

I have an HP printer that is not AirPrint capable. The printer does have wireless capability as I can print using my laptop PC but not my iPad or iPhone. If I hook it up to the USB port on the AirPort Express will I be able to print from my iPad or iPhones?

  • Yes you will be able to print from a computer.
    Ipad or iPhone it depends.
    Apple was going to add print capability to later versions of iOS. Not sure if it has this yet.
    If you have a local mac computer available you can add that capability through a third party product.
    I use Printopia running on a local mac to provide print capability for my iPads, iPods, and iPhones to my local area network printers.
