Anyone else had issues airprinting with a Brother printer?

I just got my printer yesterday and I can only iPrint & Scan from some weak app from itunes and I can't find my printer to print my email... Is there something I missed doing this? I even tried my iphone and it wont find the printer either since the printer is on the wireless network though.

TIA.

edit:

Brother emailed me back and they said this... lame-

Dear Brother Customer,

Thank you for taking the time to write us regarding your MFC-J615W. You
can print JPEG images and PDF documents from your iPhone using the
iPrint&Scan App. Printing emails is not supported.

If you have any further questions or concerns please let us know.


Sincerely,

Fax/MFC Software Support
Customer Service
Brother International Corporation, USA
Great... Is there another way? Theres no point having airprint for this printer then. :/

Only airprint compatible printers can use airprint, and brother doesn't make any.

I have a brother printer and it works great. I have to do something to my desktop to work around it but it costs me nothing.

If it doesn't support AirPrint normally you will have to do something like this to get it working.
