Did you install the software on the computers that you wish to scan to? With some Dell scanners you need to install the software on the computer before you are able to "push" the scan to those computers.

Even though it says it can be used wirelessly or via ethernet to scan I could not find one single post that stated it worked as a scanner via anything other than usb.
Look at this link I found may help you.

Also Printing to network and wireless all in ones tends to be easy as printing passes out the windows firewall scanning over network is started at the printer and has to make it past the firewall to work on Vista and 7 this is easier said then done.

To test the software I would try scanning via USB and once confirmed working move on to wireless or wired network testing.
