Go to the compuetr that the device is directly hooked up to.  Go to your mycomputer and right click on the scanner, and click on the sharing link.

You might also access it from the printers control panel.

I need to make the scanner available on the network, the printer is networked OK but can't seem to figure it out. Can you help

Need to know what printer and how it's hooked up.
For instance, if it's an all in one printer (epson or HP etc) and it's hooked up USB to one computer and shared across the network, you can't share the scan capability across the network.
What yu'd have to do is scan to the computer that it's hooked up to, placing the scans into a folder that is shared across the network so anybody can access it.

If it's a network capable scanner with it's own Ethernet connection, then the process can be vastly different, but the scan function should be sharable across the network.

How can I set-up my Lexmark printer wirelessly? I seem to have loss my manual. Help!!!!

Wireless networking your printer or scanner may sound difficult, but newer machines are making it easier to do.

The first step is to get your home wireless network configured properly. Bradley Mitchell, the Guide to Computer Networking, has a fantastic and easy-to-follow primer on networking that's a great place to start.

Microsoft also offers a handy tutorial on wireless-networking basics that will help if you're using Windows. If you're using Vista and running into problems, troubleshooting guide will help.

If you're using Windows 7 and want to share a printer on a home network, follow the links at How to Share a Printer on a Home Network with Windows 7.

Next, learn more about the basics of wireless printing with a primer from Etan Horowitz of the Orlando Sentinel.

If you're trying to use a scanner that doesn't have a network card, you can find some useful software from Remote Scan.

Unable to access my Laptop on My Network from my Desktop. Desktop connected to D Link DI-524 via LAN Cable and Laptop connected to same router via Wifi. Please provide a solution how to access and share...

To enable file sharing you need to follow the below steps
I moved this to networking for better exposure. I'll give you some basic tips, but it's generally pretty simple.

Turn off any firewalls for debugging. If the firewall is the problem, you'll have to configure it to allow access to "trusted zone" addresses. Note that some firewalls must be completely uninstalled to stop them from affecting your networking.

PING each computer by IP address, and if successful, PING by name. You can obtain the IP address of a computer by opening a command prompt (DOS window) and typing IPCONFIG. This should work for any Windows version.

All computers should be in the same workgroup for computer browsing to function properly. File & Print Sharing has to be enabled on any computer you wish to share files or printers from. You also need to actually share the resource in question from My Computer, right click on the drive/printer/folder, and select sharing.

If you encounter difficulties accessing computers that are visible in Network Neighborhood, make sure the computer being accessed has an account with the same name/password as the system connecting to it uses to login.

While the default NetBIOS setting is correct for normal network configurations, it's possible for it to be altered, and it costs nothing to make sure it's correct. NETBIOS over TCP/IP must be enabled for normal network browsing.
Let me know if this will help

Connecting printer to SBS (Small Business Server)

You can physically connect the printers to the server and share it from there or leave the printers connected to your computer and have the server connect to them via a Local Port which routes to your computer!! To do the Create the local ports you'll need to 1.) share the printers on your pc 2.) Go to the server and go to printers in control panel 3.)Click on Add a new printer then next 4.)Select Local Printer connected to this computer; De-select Automatically Detect Printer 5.)Select Create new port and select Local Port 6.)In the enter a port name, enter the full network path to the printer i.e. \\your-pc-name\printer-share-name click ok 7.) Select the drivers for that specific printer(if its not there click on have disk then browse to the drivers to install them) 8.) Continue through the installation until finish) 9.) Repeat steps for additional printers Keep in mind that your computer still needs to be on! You can check to see if your printer support a network card to make them fully network printer you can add them to the server this way and only the server would need to be on! Or you can also get a print server(Device that makes regular printers into network printers). Now when it comes to the scanning, i don't know of any way to share a scanner with just windows alone, but there are third party software that allows you to do that Check out There are also printers that sorta do the scanners sharing by automatically scanning and putting files in a designated area on the network! Hope this was helpful regards, babb
