4630-e how to set up scanner with no usb cable

I have a HP 4630-e printer. I have had it one day and am able to copy and print, but I am not able to scan. Can you tell me how to do this without a USB cable please?

Hi,

 

Normally if we can print wirelessly then we can scan wirelessly, no need USB cable. Please download the following tool and run on your computer:

 

   http://ftp.hp.com/pub/softlib/software12/COL50849/mp-129932-1/HPPSdr.exe

 

and post back any error/message.

 

Regards.

"You cannot open the application HPPSdr.exe because Microsoft Windows are not supported on OS X"

Finally was able to get it to work by opening the printer icon first, clicking scanner and doing it from the computer vs. the printer.

One other thing to note... If you get "Done Scanning the selected area" but it does not scan, then click HIDE DETAILS, and another SCAN button will appear. Click it... that worked for me!
