It may be as simple as rebooting the router, and letting it find your devices again. Try that.

Tried, didn't work. Printing works perfectly with the old 3GS and doesn't work with any of the more recent devices.
I've looked again and it is because the printer isn't supported by iOS 5.x... What a pain! Have to buy software or use google print to get it working, far from an ideal solution as it means I can't print web pages directly or use that cool looking print feature in browsers and acrobat reader.
What's really annoying is that some printers that were not supported in ios 4.x still worked, this enhancement has been removed so now only a strictly defined list of printers (around 10 hp model printers only) will work. This is all down to legal jumbo jumbo, patent problems and other disputes.. Which would be none of my business if it didn't affect me directly.
A free (and easy) workaround to print files is to set up cloud printing on goog, you can then print from anywhere in the world to anyone you'd like by simply emailing the file to your gmail account and selecting the print option. This also works with google docs so you're not restricted to gmail.

I have really never heard of a model that was AirPrint not working with ios5.1. Really strange, as that will mess up a lot of folks.
What make and model printer are you talking about? I would like to poke around a little.

The printer is an epson sx425w. Not on the list but working perfectly on ios 4.x

I'm having the same issue, it is very frustrating!!! I'm using the iPhone 4s and the iPad 2 and none of my devices are detecting my printer, good thing a read this because I was about to call HP and... Well let's just say that I didn't plan on having a friendly conversation with them!!

Same issue here my iPhone 4S (OS 5.1.1) finds the airplay printer HP LaserJet CP1025nw but my New iPad (OS 5.1.1) don't, I've rebooted the router but still the problem remains any ideas?
