    Oh, yeah! AirPrint Activator. OSX 10/6 only, free, the app runs in the background and links through your Mac to the wifi printer. Of course, this is useless unless you have both your Mac and your iPad, but it works great around my house.

    What brand printer is it? Many manufacturers have their own app.

    Otherwise, I use PrintSharePro via my PC. It will then to any share that is set-up on my work PC, also does direct print to wifi printers apparently.

    Canon's limited app Easy Photo-Print may be compatible, but limited to printing photos and PDFs I believe.

    Probably one of PrintnShare Pro's sister apps will work - wireless printers should work out of the box, wired printers need an add-on app on PC to print to every shared printer on he network.

    I use Finger Print (from collobos.com) this creates an airprint print server for any attached printers ( I use a Canon Pixima Printer). There is a Mac & Windows version.

    Another option I have tried is PrinterShare Mobile available in App store which supports direct IP printing from IOS device to network attached printer, but this only prints in B&W.
