Wireless use of HP Officejet J5780 scanner capability

I have my Officejet J5780  set up on a wireless network that I use via a Macbook Pro  (OS 10.5.3) and my wife uses via a pc laptop computer. It works fine for printing, but we cannot use the scanner capabilities. Any suggestions?

Thanks

Have you tried downloading and installing the Mac universal driver or the PC driver from here?

Thanks for the suggestion, but yes. I downloaded and installed the universal Mac driver. It works fine for printing. It just won't find the scanner application.
So I'm still open for suggestions. Thanks again.

I have no solution for you but am interested in your set-up for PC compatible wireless printing.  Care to share the details?
