Can't Scan from My Dell Printer Onto My Computer?

I have connected my computer to the Dell Photosmart printer through the ethernet cable. I can print from computer to printer but the problem arises when I scan documents or photos. My printer won’t scan and besides this, “no scanner is detected” message display on the screen. In my computer, Windows 7 operating system is installed. So please help me how can I enable scanner part of my printer.
