    I have my HP printer/scanner connected to my TC via USB and I can use it to print files over wifi but the scanner doesn't show up when I open Image Capture. Is it possible to scan files using my printer/scanner over wifi? It shows up when I plug it directly into my Mac.

    Multifunction printers connected via USB to Airport Express/Extreme and Time Capsule are print only.

    And there's no way to get it to scan too?

    Apple supports AirPrint but has not released AirScan (if there is such a thing) yet.

    If you have a USB scanner you can use the Silex SX-2000WG+ wireless USB server. At the moment it is 802.11g only but I understand they are intending to upgrade to 802.11n this year.

    Silex have offices in regions other than Europe if that is more convenient for you.
