    Default connect smart phone to wireless printer

    Please tell me how to connect my LG Optimist to an epson stylus NX420, it would be greatly appreciate.... Get really tired of finding things I need to print when Im on my phone. Printer is wireless so should be easy enough, but just can't figure it out.

    I think you need to have Google Chrome installed on a computer that is connected to the printer. Then go into the setings on Chrome and set it for cloud print. So, when you want to print from tablet or phone you "Send to" cloud print.

    It works absolutely fine on mine. LL

    i heard tha some newer printers do email printing wirelessly or you can get some software and the PC connected to it becomes the print server that listens for incomings that you can install the app on the cellphone too to send this instruction.

    not sure if there are any phones that can simply just install the printer driver. maybe the exception being win8 tablets ....
