How do you run an HP printer/scanner without HP software?

I have a 2011 21.5 iMac (i5,4gb,) running current version of Lion 10.7.3 and have a HP printer/scanner (desk jet 3054)that came with it as part of an offer.
I set it up with the HP software and it ran well wirelessly... until it didn't. It wouldn't scan. Also the software started hogging the CPU and the % grew by the day.
Both these issues have been documented by others around the net. Anyways I have it working just fine using Image Capture but plugged in via usb. I can't get it working without the cable and I do not want the crappy HP software back.
Any ideas. Thanks
