Likewise my 6220 works great with the Surface and is AirPrint capable as well in case you have a mixed environment as I do.

My Canon MG6120 works excellent. The Surface automatically installed the drivers when I connected to my wireless network, and installed a sweet little status app on the start screen. It sort of surprised me, as I was just messing around with the Surface when I noticed a new tile: Canon Inkjet Print Utility.

 

Yes it surprised to also. I am really liking the companion app. Now I can just open and app and check my ink levels on a whim.

I have an HP Envy 110, which works great. I can print or scan. I have a venerable old HP LaserJet 2200 DN and I can't get it to work with the Surface either in PCL or Postscript--it supports both. It works with my Windows 8 Pro laptops. It is 10 years old, so I didn't expect much.

I also has a great experience with Canon printers. They were all automatically found and the app is surprisingly useful! My old HP is another story (not a WiFi printer) haven't played around with it, but I'll check it out and post my experience setting that up. (hopefully scanner too)

Hello All - if you have a printer that is old or not compatible with the the Surface RT, there is now a solution.

 

KumoPrint (see link below) - is a new app for Google Cloud Printing with the Surface RT.  It works very well and has finally solved the printing crisis for people like me who have a good printer non-compatible RT Printer, no desire to replace it, and love my Surface RT.

 

Check KumoPrint out!

By the way I'm not the developer am only promoting it as a fellow Surface RT user who wants to share the information.

      Hi
       
      I have a Surface 2 hooked to our home network via WiFi. There is an Epson printer on the network. My husband and all Windows Vista and W7 laptop can connect to it without problems, but not my Surface. It shows the Printer under Devices, but as being offline, and no printing is possible. Very irritating. Anybody has a solution for that problem ?
