Are you able to print from the computer while the printer is on the network?


Open the Photosmart 7515 software and click on "Active Scan to Computer".  Does it activate successfully or does it fail?


Download the Print & Scan Doctor and run the utility.  It can check for several settings on the computer to ensure there is not an issue there.  Firewalls can be an issue and this will help identify if there is a firewall issue.
