Dell 3300 with OS X 10.4?

I have a Dell 1720 Laser Printer which connects properly to my iMac running OS X 10.4 (Leopard). I recently purchased a Dell 3300 Wireless Printer Adapter to add to this printer, but I can't seem to figure out how to get it to work on my Mac. The drivers that came with it are for Windows.

Re: Dell 3300 with OS X 10.4?

I've had a similar issue with a Netgear wireless print server. I had to configure it via Windows but was finally able to get it all working by using the Mac CUPS interface.

Recently got two new laptops and have a existing Dell 3 in 1 photo printer all wireless. Loaded the printer software on the laptops I can print using the usb cable but it will not print wireless not sure...

make sure that both your computer and printer are both on the same network. after connect them you are most likely going to have to add the printer to the laptops. go into your control panel where it says hardware and sound and click on printer. there will be an option to add printer up at the top, click that and a new window will open up, click on the add wireless or bluetooth printer and follow the steps.

Dell 3300 adapter


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

Please let me know the security center your are using, so that I can suggest you the solution.

There is a problem with the security center Which is not allowing to connect to print server.

Solution: you will have to allow print spooler service and othe services in exception in the security center.
