Two Canon D1170 printers

I'm sure this is a easy fix although I'm stuck. I am trying to add two Canon D1170 Image Class printers to our network and have gone through the process of installing the driver and I set up one of the printers although I am having issues installing the other because typically the route I take when adding a new printer is to install the driver and go through the wizard set up. But I receive an error on the second printer everytime. What am I missing??

    Almost everybody's network locator service loves to get buggy!  Go to each printer's web management and set them to static ip addresses then add them as standard TCP/IP ports.  Unless you need centralized printer usage and account management, it's also best to do the same on the workstations as it reduces network traffic and avoids mixed O/S version problems.
