I understand AirPrint is not officially supported for Airport devices, but I'd like to find a way around this. Is there a patch or piece of software I can use to get my Airport Extreme to translate AirPrint requests into something it can use for the printers it shares?

P.S. I was unable to create an AirPrint tag; I suggest this be added.

Printopia by Ecamm will enable AirPrint for any printer visible to your Mac, as long as said Mac is running. It’s what I use to print to the old LaserJet I have hooked to my Time Capsule from iOS.

Thanks. I was hoping for something somehow running on the network but that should work well enough. –  Michael Oct 17 '11 at 17:42
