I also own a entire home network centered around a Dimension XPS pc, two Inspiron laptops, a pocket pc and a Dell AIO 962 printer. After looking at buying the wireless printer adapter, I decided it was easier to have the printer hooked by USB2 cable to the PC, and access the printer through my wireless network, using the share printer features in Windows XP. The only downside is the PC and printer need to both be on, as Dell states in the Dell 3300 listing :
"The 3300 allows you to share your multifunction printer on your wireless network and removes the requirement to keep your PC on 24/7 to share your/ fax/ scanner."
I installed the wireless adapter as directed to both the Dimension 4600 desktop and the Inspiron 6000. The desktop communicates fine with the Dell AIO 962 printer, but not with the laptop. Dell couldn't help so I am returning the adaptor. What other option do I have so my desktop and laptop can both print wirelessly? Thanks. This has been making me NUTS!
