Connect USB scanner to Ethernet network.

I have a document scanner with only a USB port, and the scanner is located on the other side of the room from a computer. Because the distance is a little over 12', I purchased a USB cable that has a built-in repeater. Unfortunately, I keep getting errors to the point where it is unusable.

Is there a device I can purchase, like a print server, that will allow me to connect a USB scanner to my Ethernet network?
