You no need to physically own the CD for the HP client programs. They are all available at HP's support site.

hey bbao do you have the link for the HP client programs?
like a utility for the scanner and it being wirelessly connected
thank you reach2sandeep but I have reviewed all those links and done ALL those things
the installation seems flawed from the CD; when we selected setup wirelessly, it still prompted to plugin the unit as if it were being installed via USB
great little printer for SMB office, but this wireless setup is maddening
Win XP 32bit worked fine; it setup without issue and scanning wirelessly from inside control panel scanners and devices was seamless! 64bit Windows 7 not so intuitive

Nothing suggested has worked All
going to see if we can get support from HJP directly; this is crazy that we cannot get a simple scanner to function via wireless connection

after contacting HP found that scan utility was corrupt
once we used the ReadIris Downloader scanning worked fine!
