If your iPad can see other computers on the network but not the printer, try setting one of the other computers to share the printer and have the iPad access the printer as a shared device off of that other computer. We used to have to do this with for laptop on our home wireless network; we set one of our desktops up to share the printer so the laptop could find it.

Have you set up the printer to be shared via the network? You can usually set this up in printer options, through control panel. If the wifi is a closed network, so much the better.
