If you don't care about scanning to a document like Microsoft Word(I use Open Office, like Microsoft Word, Excel, but FREE) then you won't need an OCR Program.
If you're just scanning pictures and images, then an OCR Program isn't needed. Having the option to edit the text after it's scanned might help but some programs still don't scan perfectly.
Since you're using a host computer, it might not matter about WPA & WPA2 security. I found better results on channel 11.
Have a nice holiday and keep me posted.
