Help Setting up my canon printer wireless?

Hello, folks, recently I bought a Canon Pixma E-560 for my home printing needs. It is a wireless printer and something was wrong or I might have put it wrong but I cannot set it up without any help. I called the Canon printer guys and they said it will take them more than a week to come to my place. I need to set this printer immediately as I have lot of pending works. Does anyone out here knows how to setup Canon wireless printers then please help.
