    My question is how do I configure the printer through the router so that the other computers can use the printer's scanning capabilities.

    I have 6 wireless computers on a home network. My wireless router has an input to accommodate a printer.

    Currently the printer is connected to computer 1 via USB and all the computers can print from the printer as long as computer #1 is turned on.

    My question is how do I configure the printer through the router so that the other computers can use the printer without #1 computer being turned on?

    It may not be possible. Not all printers/drivers let you do that.

    I can print on a printer attached to my wife's PC but I cannot scan from it. Canon told me that only a few models allow that, but not mine.

    Thanks. Guess there's not much use in pursuing the matter, huh?
