I use PrinterShare, which isn't free, but works well to print to a Brother laser on the network.

hey thats sounds ok but what do you mean by "works on the network" so this will only work with the internet?

I use the PrintBot app from the Market to print via wifi (direct) to my Brother HL-2170W printer. It supports multiple printers so check it out.
