Ah for printing iOS does require a printer that conforms to the airprint standard.. does it??
You might well need a Mac if your printer is not correct if you are committed to the printer.
There are tools to help you print from iOS to a non-compliant printer like printopia but I am not sure if you can buy a PC version.
There are several equivalent tools and there maybe some available for PC.

According to the Apple website it is a supported model. As a side note I had this very printer working on the newtowrk when I was using a Belkin. As far as I can the only thing I am missing is a MAC. By Apples on words it is a two step process, yet the second step cannot be accomplished on a PC:
Configuring a Wi-Fi printer is a two step process:
- First, the Wi-Fi printer must be configured to join your Wi-Fi network. For information about recommended Wi-Fi settings, please see iOS and OS X: Recommended settings for Wi-Fi routers and access points.
- Second, you need to add the printer to OS X. See this article for information about how to add a printer in OS X Mountain Lion & Lion.

The setup of the printer depends purely on the printer.. Apple do not make printers.. so the printer company must supply a setup utility that works from iOS.. If they don't then you must have a computer at least to do the setup.. but once the printer is setup there is no computer required.

Turns out the issue was my own. I had setup a static IP on my printer and when I changed routers the IP range changed from 192.168 to 10.0, my printer could not be found in the notwork. I have reset the printer and it now works perfect. Thanks
