connecting canon pixma mx870 to dlink router

Specs: Windows XP
We had to send our Canon Pixma MP830 all in one printer in for repairs, and we have an mx870 loaner. The MP830 was connected directly to the desktop computer and to a lap top in another room via a dlink router. But we do not know how to get the lap top to recognize the MX870. We tried adding it and entered the name Canon Pixma M870, and the program does not accept the name.

You have to install the printer driver/software on the desktop and then set it to be shared, after which it can be added as a network printer on your laptop, same as the previous printer.
