Can you scan successfully via a USB connection?
Can you provide (compressed) debug logs and a copy of your epkowa.conf?

  SANE_DEBUG_DLL=128 SANE_DEBUG_EPKOWA=HEX iscan > out.pnm 2> debug.log

will collect the SANE backend debugging info in debug.log.  If the
problem only manifests itself with network scans, a network packet
capture (of the TCP traffic on port 1865 and nothing else) might be
helpful as well.  I'd use wireshark to do the packet capture.
