Question about Dell 3300 Print Server
The Dell 3300 seems to install correctly but when I go to add it to the network I have to disable security or it errors out. I have a DLlink DIR-450 EVDO router. I had WPA2 auto enabled and enter the proper passcode when trying to get the 3300 added to the network but it always errors out. When I remove all security it adds to the network. Other options (that I have not tried) for security in the router are WEP, WPA, WPA2. Is there anyway I can add security back to my router and get this printer server to work? Thanks.
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.

Tips for a great answer:
Desktop computers are not known for their wireless connectivity, but it is possible to make yours one that is.
Wireless network adapters, which enable your desktop to pick up wireless Internet signals, come in a variety of forms, and are all fairly easy to install.
Once you have one installed, getting online wirelessly is almost effortless.
Choose the network adapter that is right for you.
The easiest network adapters to connect do so via USB, but if you have limited USB ports on your desktop, you may want to try another option.
There are also network adapters that plug into your Ethernet port, but if you want to use that port for a landline connection you have, and wireless is your backup, then this also may not work for you.
If that is the case, you can buy an add-in card, which fortunately for Dell owners is very easy to install.
Dell computers are designed to be opened and have add-in cards installed without the use of screwdrivers; check your manual for details.
Install the network adapter and any included software.
The adapter will usually come with a software CD with a notice to run the CD either before or after you have plugged in or installed your adapter.
Go through the setup steps on the CD, click "Finish" when it is complete, and your wireless network adapter should then be activated and ready to receive wireless signals.
Click the notification that pops up letting you know that wireless networks are available; or, if there is no notification, go "Start > Connect To" and all available networks will be displayed.
Double-click on the logo for the network you want to connect to and enter the security key if it is a secure network.
(If you set the network up, you should have the security key saved somewhere with your network settings.
If you are connecting to a nearby hotspot, you will need to ask the permission of whoever set up the connection and obtain the security key from that person.)
Select "Home," "Work" or "Public Location" when prompted to designate what type of network connection this is.
You will then be asked if you want your computer to remember this computer and start it automatically in the future.
If you plan to use this connection regularly, it is a good choice to check the boxes next to both options so that the connection will always be available and you won't have to enter a security key for it again.
Hope this helps.
