network scanner

I can put my printer through my home nnetwork but I am about to upgrade my scanner but cant find one that is networkable. I want to scan phoos as well as documents so best resolution is desired. Can anyone help?

Can you network scanners? Printers, yes, but I don't think I've ever seen any discussion of putting a scanner on a network. Disclaimer: I could be wrong!

Surely they would work the same way? You can buy networkable multifunction devices.

As far as I am aware you cannot do it via a network. You could however install the scanner software on another PC in the same room, then plug the USB cable from the scanner to that PC.

There probably is a better way available, suggest you post this query in the PCA Networking section...someone there maybe able to help.

Would be interested to know the answer as I would like to do the same thing.
