Canon i9900 printer won't work with Windows 7 (64)

I just got a new laptop with Windows 7 (64) and can't seem to get my Canon i9900 printer to connect to it via my home network.  My Canon MX860 printer connected with no problems.  I've already gone to the Canon website and downloaded the driver update, but it won't work.  It starts to download, then pops to a new page and says it's installed.  Try to connect the printer again, and it states there is no driver available.  Any suggestions?  Thank you.
