You can use a USB Print Server I think to do this if you already have a scanner. Certainly I have a print server working on my Windows 7 machine so I think that part is OK.  ... Thinkpads_User

Yes, but what are your needs - color? flatbed? ADF? duplex? speed? duty cycle (pages per day)? etc? And how much money is in the budget for it? All of this makes a big difference in what we recommend. Also, do you want just a scanner or a multi-function/all-in-one device (scanner, printer, copier, fax)? Regards, Joe

I Didn´t know that a print server would be a solution for a scanner too....
Which software support IP scanners?

The scanner has a very low use, maybe 10 pages per day

There are some limitations of this approach. Here is one possibility:

I only put it forward in the event you had a scanner you were partial to. A network scanner would work better.

Some of the HP and Canon 'All-in-One' devices have software to scan over the network.

Well, for such low use (10 pages per day), there are many options. How much money do you want to spend? Regards, Joe

HP has the scanjet software but I wonder if its only compatible with devices of the same brand

The HP software for scanning over the network is not the same as the USB software, at least the driver part isn't.

To be clear, are you looking for a network scanner (hardware) or scanning software (that works with a network-connected scanner)? The original question had me thinking hardware, but the last few posts have been about software. Regards, Joe

You have to have both.  Go here http://www.shopping.hp.com/all-in-one and you will find many machines under $350.  As far as I can tell, all the ones that have wireless also have ethernet connections.

Originally was hardware but now could be any of them

For less than half that price, I recommend the Brother MFC-7360N. It is a multi-function device (print, scan, copy, fax) that provides scanning on both a flatbed and with an automatic document feeder (ADF). It has a built-in Ethernet network interface and comes bundled with software for scanning. It costs just $165 at Amazon:

Here's a link to the specs at the Brother site:

It will provide plenty of room for growth in your volume. Regards, Joe

Or the cheapest solution *only if you have a wireless ready network:

Walmart: http://www.walmart.com/ip/Canon-PIXMA-MP495-Wireless-All-in-One-Printer-Value-Bundle/15042566

$58.00 dollars. All in one, which includes Scanning document capabilities.

The LAN is like this:
The computers that need to scan are under ethernet but there is a WiFi Router in which all workstations are concentrated, is that enough ?

have you ever used the software that you recommended with a print server?

On Windows 7, I have only used printers. On an older USB server using Windows XP, I got one scanner working at a client. I cannot speak with first hand experience for newer devices. ... Thinkpads_User

If the router is in the same ip address  range of the workstations that need to scan, it should be enough.
