Yes you can print from your Ipad2 using the Deskjet 6940. To do this go to your itunes app store and download a free app called HP ePrint Home and Biz. Part of the app contains options for ePrint but your printer is not an ePrint printer so this part of the app will not function with your printer. For this to work your printer and the Ipad must be on the same network, here is a link to a document on HP.com that should help explain things a little better. Hope this helps.
If I have helped you solve your issue please mark it as solved

I would not waste the time if I were you. When I finally got the instructions I needed and attempted to use the app for my non-EPrint printer, it was in no way an easy process. I eventually scrapped all efforts to print from our iPhones and iPad.
The only way to use the printer is to first fire up the HP app and then submit print jobs directly through the app (so you have to open a web session from within the HP app, or open pictures from there, not through the native i-device web and photos apps). Even when you do manage to get the print job you want submitted, it either times out and doesn't print or the format and content of what does print is no where close to what you are intending.
It is much easier and a lot less time & ink\paper costs to just email things to myself and then walk over to my desktop to print them.
