Unhappy F12-Network setup Canon MX860

I am new to Lunux and just installed Fedora 12.

Everything is working great with one exception; I cannot get the printer recognized on the wirless network. I can print through the USB port however.

What I have done -
loaded the drivers I found at the Canon Europe site.
installed CUPS - and using the web site. Having some trouble however as it is forbidding me from doing anything. When I try to change something I get the message Forbidden.
It initially worked fine but I installed a printer setting that did not work and made some changes and that is when the problems started.
The printer administration network screen sees bjnp but when I click on it nothing happens.

I have the IP address and the MAC address but am not sure how to use them in the installation.

See my thread here. Setting up the network connection is the last post I believe.

Fedora 19 Gnome on a ThinkPad X220, i5-2540M CPU, Intel HD Graphics 3000, Intel N 6205 wireless, and Sierra Wireless 754S Mobile Hotspot (AT&T)
