Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit
Manually add a network multifunction printer?

Hi, I have a Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit PC connected to a home network with other PCs connected. Additionally, there's a network printer (HP Officejet 6310xi) that available on the network. Now when I had my XP PC on the network, I was able to access the printer's printing, scanning and faxing resources via the control software (HP Solution) which worked fine, but it took a great deal of space and resources. Now I have a Windows 7 system, I really don't want to tie up resources with this control software, however, when I use the device wizard, all I find is the printer resource. I am frustrated with HP's only solution is to install the control program and no other way to scan or fax over the network. Isn't there a way to manually install a network device? I mean, technically, you can manually install a network printer with Windows, but why not a network scanner or network fax machine?
