I have a Canon MP620 that I have been using for quite some time via a wireless connection to my AirPort Extreme base station which my two computers (early 2008 iMac, mid 2010 MacBook Pro) have been printing and scanning through with no issues... until now.  I don't know what changed because as far as I know I haven't made any changes to anything.  When I open the AirPort utility it no longer even says anything about printer sharing like it did when I set it up a couple years ago.  Obviously, since then I've upgraded everything but everything has worked until just recently and I have changed nothing in the past month that would have caused this to happen.  My current OS is 10.8.2 on both machines.  Also, my MacBook Pro is triple booting with Windows 7 Ultimate and Ubuntu.  My MacBook can print using both MacOS and Windows 7 with no issues.  However, my iMac, which is connected via ethernet cable to the AirPort Extreme, will not print.  I consistantly get an error message saying, "A communication error has occurred."  I have tried reinstalling the printer driver and have tried downloading the Canon Wireless Setup Assistant and fixing the connection issue with that.  No go.  So, now I need some expert advice on how to make my setup work again.

iMac, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2), 4GB RAM
