How to Connect a Canon Printer to a Laptop via Ethernet with No Router?

I have a Canon inkjet semi-automatic printer at home. It is a wireless printer and I have been using it for a month. Recently my PC malfunctioned and it is under repair so in order to configure it with my MacBook I need to connect it to the laptop using a cabled connection since the laptop is not detecting any wireless signal. Can anyone tell me how to connect my canon printer using an Ethernet cable to the laptop?
