We've got a Canon ImageRunner printer connected via USB to a user's computer, and we need to be able to access its administrative user interface... but it's connected via USB instead of ethernet.  Any way to access that user interface?  (We need to set up scanning to folder and email functions.)

Alternatively, there's NOT an ethernet switch at this location... just the computer (wireless) and the printer.  Can we connect the printer directly to the computer using an ethernet cable?  Crossover cable required?

It's a Canon ImageRunner 1730.

P.S.  Last thought - maybe we could connect the printer via wireless?  (We haven't checked this at all - didn't think it's capable, and didn't want to complicate things with this user.)
