    McAfee Total Protection-Firewall and Wireless Printing Issue

      I have a Gateway Vista Desktop in my home wireless network, as well as a Canon mulitfunction printer (MP620).  This setup has worked fine for over a year.  A week or so ago, I started getting a 'printer not responding' message whenever I tried to print something.  Printer is on, green light is steady, after contacting Canon Tech support, I found that if I disabled the Firewall, it printed!  Canon advised me as to what apps needed Firewall permission (and they are in the list in Firewall).  I also added several ports (8611,8612,8613) to the permission list.  Still getting the same message.  My family has now been trained to disable the firewall if they want to print anything, but there must be a better way.  Thanks.
