Hello, I am a new owner of a TF300 with the keyboard dock. Until I can figure out my printing situation, the tablet is still unopened.
Here is a quick rundown of my situation:
I was in need of a device that would allow me to print webpages through my 4g mobile hotspot. In the past I was just using an old laptop. I wanted something more portable and with better battery life, so I opted to begin looking at tablets. Now, the reason I purchased this tablet is that I was told (by a BestBuy employee) that I would be able to connect through blutooth or wifi to my printer and printing would be no problem. After doing a few forum searches, I found that you must use a 3rd party app, an universal one like "printershare", or I also see that most printer manufacturers have an app.
Now even after reading through several forum threads I still have a few questions.
While at work, I only have my tablet and my 4g hotspot. Will I be able to connect both my printer and tablet to this hotspot so that I can use "printershare"? Does the printer have to be connected to the 4g in order for my tablet to access it? Can the tablet be connected to the printer by blutooth alone (the tablet will still be connected to the 4g hotspot) ?
Also, I have not bought a new printer yet, I still have my old one with no wi-fi or blutooth. Can anyone reccomend me the best brand of printer would be best (or has the best app) for printing from webpages?
Thank you so much for reading, I know it may be a confusing post so feel free to ask questions.
