I should also mention, you might be able to browse to 
http://router_address:631 and get a control interface / list of printers, 
since you'll probably be asked the "remote queue name", or have to include 
it in the URL.

>The IP of the router must be in one of the following formats:

Probably one of these:

>Additionally, I have these protocols to choose from:

Probably one of these:
>Internet Printing Protocol (http)
>Internet Printing Protocol (ipp)
>LPD/LPR Host or Printer

You might run:
nmap -P0 -p80,515,631 router_address
to help identify when printing protocol is being used.
