Setting up network scanning with 3115cn

This question is not answered

I've just bought a 3115cn and I'm struggling to set up network scanning. It seems incredibly complicated to set up something that is normally so simple. Previously we used a Samsung copier/scanner/fax/printer which came with a wizard to set up a desktop icon which we simply double click to scan documents. Is there nothing that Dell provides or that I can download elsewhere to make this easier? It's like going back to the late 80's when you had to be a technical genius to install anything and I thought we'd moved on from that.
