We have a printer with a scanner attached to the router...we now have a laptop connected to a wireless connection.

Our problem is that we do not know how to scan anymore? Is there hardware to adapt the printer to scanning through a wireless computer...The printer works fine.
Thanks,
BARB

I think I'd start by having a long hard look at the manual and any scanning software which came with the unit.

It may be that it simplifies things if you connect the computer to the printer/scanner by USB or whatever (which you will need to do if the device isn't designed to scan wirelessly)
