Dell 3300 Printer Adapter and Vista

I have a new Dell Studio running Vista. On my existing home network, I have a desktop and laptop already connected to my Dell 3300 Wireless Print Adapter and my Dell AIO 962 Printer. I am having difficulty adding the printer on my new machine. Any ideas?

Vista is tricky when adding networked printers.  
Add printer by using a local device, not a networked device.  Assume the printer is connected locally to the machine.

964 Dell printer will not connect to wireless network


As for the 964 printer, ues you can make it wireless by using a Dell Wireless Printer Adapter 3300 or some type of wireless print server. To install the drivers for the 964 printer, you will need to post in the Dell Printers Forum, as the printer drivers on a Vista machine are a little tricky to install but I have my 964 printer working with a 3300 , (thanks for Rick dell forum)

I have a dell 946 all in one printer... everything works but the scanner... I just purchased a new computer that has vista and my old computer had xp... worked fine on old puter... any suggestions


You need a new driver from Dell that funtions with Vista. If you have Vista X64 OS then this function may not be available for a while longer as the driver for the scanner is still in development. There is a significant difference between a 32-bit and 64-bit OS.

I'm running into networking problems with my Vista X64 OS and a printer on my home network that connects through XP Pro on a desktop computer with a 32-bit OS.

A Windoze Vista 32-bit laptop has no problems with this printer.

Dell 3300 adapter


Hi,

Let me recap, just one more time.
Your wireless router,
You updated the firmware(most have out dated firmware from sitting in the warehouse)
Broadcast SSID
Using WPA-PSK(TKIP) Security
Mixed mode(b and g, n if available) This is needed for wireless devices to work properly.
Channels 1, 6 or 11. These channels are the channels most wireless devices work on the best(I use channel 11)
Now for the printer. Download and run this patch to completely remove the printer from your computer.

The patch is password protected. The way around the password protected zip file is to open the zip file with Winrar or 7zip(.exe file)

Restart your computer.

After router is done, now setup your wireless print server/printer.
3300 Utility
3300 Firmware
Attach the 3300 to your computer using the USB Cable and insert the 3300 disk. Follow the instructions. It should ask you for the network ID, type of security and password.
Download the proper drivers.
XP Drivers
Vista 32-bit Drivers
Install the drivers, choose network, choose I'm using a wireless print server(if you do not see this, then choose add printer and you should see it then) and follow the instructions.

Thanks for contacting Fixya

Trying to take a new wireless built in laptop, home to my current wireless network. The new laptop recognizes my home wireless network, but unable to connect to it. The laptop is a Dell studio 17 and...


If you are hardly doesn't connect even your wireless station is been detected why not try to set your settings manually in your wireless card.

This is when you are behind a router.

Goto Network and sharing center. Click on Manage Wireless Network. Click on Adapter properties. Click Internet Protocol version 4. Click properties, then set the ipaddress of your laptop it doesn't have to be identical to any of your existing connection, your subnet, default gateway. And also input your IP DNS.

Setting up a wireless printer


Hi Rob,

The situation seems very vague, First off, you have to identify if you're using this for a corporate environtment usage or are you using this on a home network? Next question would be,if the network you're connecting the dell wireless adaptor to has reserved the ip address for the allocation of the printer. If not, then there are a few possible reasons for your situation:

  • IP Mismatch. If you're connecting the dell wireless adaptor directly to your printer and network, ensure that the IP ADDRESS of the printer is matching that of the ipaddress of the printer driver in your computer (Control panel>Printers>Right click printer>properties)

  • Driver Error. Download the latest driver for your model printer and install it on your notebook. Once this is done, make sure you are able to "see" the printer by printing a test page.

  • Not conencted to the netwrok. Sometimes, this happens when you're not connected to the netwrok (but you think you are just casue you see a "connected" icon). Make sure you're conencitng to YOUR network everytime you reboot and not mooch on some other netwrok.
Hope this helped. Please do let me know how it goes. Thank you.
