If the Dell Photo All-in-One (AIO) printer is already
installed on a system and the Dell 3300 wireless printer adapter is
added to the configuration, the network printer object is not created.
When attempting to print, the error message Communication not available is displayed.

Setting up a wireless print adapter is a little bit complicated. Aside from the WPA-PSK, you need to check also the IP Address of the adapter. You have to make sure that the adapter and the router are on the same IP range. Here are the things that you need to do:
1. Write down the important information in a piece of paper:
* WPA-PSK (make sure that it is correct. It is a case sensitive).
* Channel of the router.
2. Things to do:
* Make sure that the adapter is not connected to the router.
* Configure first the settings on your adapter.
* Check the IP Address of the adapter (make sure that it has the same IP range with the router).
* You haveto check if you need to type the exact SSID of the router to the utility of the adapter.
* Type the WPA-PSK correctly.
* Set the channel of the adapter and make sure that the adapter and the router has the same wireless channel.
* Then try to detect and connect to the router.
* If you are connected to the router, PING the IP Address of the adapter using one of your computers.
NOTE: If you were able to ping the IP Address of the adapter, check the printer settings and try to print.
Have a great day!

If you are using xp or vista the network connection in those OS will do.
are the working computers are wireless to the router?
has the computer and adapter connected to the router without the key before? The issue is with that computer.
Is this Vista? I have not tried doing TKP on vista. I will try to simulate.

Let me recap, just one more time.
Your wireless router,
You updated the firmware(most have out dated firmware from sitting in the warehouse)
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.
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.
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
