Windows 7 64-bit Can't Find HP C7280 Scanner When Connected Via Wi-fi Networking

I have an HP Photosmart C7280 printer.  I've installed the full HP driver set.  It prints well.

However, the scanner is not recognized over the network.  


When I am connected via network, the scanner driver doesn't show up in the View Scanners and Cameras control panel; nor does the option to scan show up in Adobe Acrobat Standard. 


When I connect (temporarily) via USB, these issues are resolved and I can scan over the USB port.  However when I disconnect the USB, the scanner is no longer recognized once again.


I need to be able to scan over the wi-fi connection.  Can anyone please advise?  


BTW, the trouble started when I installed on Windows 7 64-bit Home Premium.  It worked ok on Vista.  


Thank you!

I do not use wi-fi but you might try the work around I spent hours coming up with.. let me know if it helps


would be interested to know if it works on a wireless system also.
