My Printer keeps giving me a "communication error"...WHY?!?

I have a Canon MG5200 series printer. I'm on a MacBook Pro Snow Leopard I love this thing, it had always worked great, so I took it to college with me. It hooks up to the wifi just fine, but when I try to print from my printer as usual, it just gives me "A communication error as occurred." I... show more I have a Canon MG5200 series printer.

I figured out it might be that I need to put in a "location" for the printer, and I'm sure it does not mean a physical description. What does it mean? I tried the airport's IP address, I tried googling it and going to the printer's site. Nothing. Useless. So, HELP PLEASE!
