For this print server it will not support any other function of the printer other than the printing part. If you are trying to use the scanner look for multifunction print server.

Depends on the print server. You can get print servers that specifically allow for this. They generally refer to them as multifunction print servers. If yours isn't one of those, then no, you can't.

It is notpossible to connect this printer wirelessly to your wireless network because it only has an USBconnection to a computer, unless you attach this printer to a print server andthen to a wireless router.
Alternatively you can set up this printer as a Shared printer on a computer onyour 10baseT LAN network. Other computers on your network can then printer tothis printer provided the computer with the printer is switched on (booted up).

2. Disconnect and reconnect the USB cable to ensure a secure connection
3. Press ON/OFF switch to reset the multifunction device
4. Reseat ink cartridge (MP160 / MP180 / MP460)

The problem you are having is pretty standard, the IP based printing works for most printers but the scanner require direct(or well faked, direct) connectivity with a USB port which most routers do not provide.

Several companies including Startech and Io Gear make Virtual USB devices which would resolve the issue.

How they work differs as instead of creating an IP printer, the usb device installs on an ip and then a driver you install on your PC(s) connect to the unit over the router and sets up a virtual USB port on your machine so you can re-install the printer as a local printer attached to what it thinks is a local USB port.

Doing this will allow you all functionality the printer offers but will slow down printing and scanning a bit

Hope this Helps,
