I'm sorry to say that the answer to your question is no.  You can print wirelessly with most printers using either an Airport Extreme Base station or an Airport Express, but for scanning, you will need to be physically connected to the scanner.

If you wanted to, you might be able to set up that old desktop to be permanently (and physically) connected to the scanner, and then you could either connect to that PC over your home network to access the scanned files, or you could potentially email them to yourself from the PC.  That might be your best bet.

Hope this helps!

Cant get my canon mx330 printer to work


Multifunction devices usually require two separate inks to acquire functionalities. For example, an empty ink cartridge especially the color ink may still produce copies without multi ink features. However, any attempts to dismaunt the ink cartridges would require restorations from the computer settings. First, inspect the printer for empty accessories that require replacements. After acquiring and replacing ink cartridges makes way for the next processes. Second, connecting the printer that has been restablished would produce display results requesting printer copy allignments. Attempt to print a document to produce the results for alligments. Goodluck

Can i copy from printer to Computer


No you can't.
Canon Pixma iP45500 is a sigle function printer. That means it just prints to paper.
What you want to do requires a multifunction printer: a printer is also a scanner/copier functions and which which is capable of acquiring an image and transfer it to the computer.





single-function printer
