    Hi! I am a newb with tablets and I just got an Acer iconia because I broke the screen on my laptop and it was going to cost the same to fix the screen or get this tablet so here I am. I no longer have a computer, this is it. The problem is my printer is older and not wireless only connects by USB . What are my options for getting them to connect? Thanks in advance!

    I myself don't have a pc any longer but few months ago when I wanted to connect a printer to my tablet,I didn't have a printer either . So in a way was easier because I made sure to buy the right printer that through the printer app would connect directly.For what I learned searching for my printer, what you want to do with your old printer, is not possible., you have to be able to connect the printer via wifi....hopefully I'm wrong though! :)

    How do you get internet access with your tablet? Is there a WIFI network you connect to?

    You need to give us a lot more info:

    printer make and model?
    Usb or Ethernet?

    There are always options.

    The IP100 has no WIFI. The only possible way is to connect to USB print server and then the network having wifi through the modem/router.
