Dell on Thursday announced a Wi-Fi enabled adapter for its printers.

The Wireless Printer Adapter 3300 allows users to print, scan or fax without being connected to their printers. The computer needs a wireless card and must be connected to a wireless network.

The $99 network adapter works with Dell's Personal Laser Printers 1700 and 1700n, as well as a new all-in-one system also announced today, the company said.


The new system, the All-In-One Printer 962, features automatic document feeding, a built-in fax modem and digital camera connectivity. It also has an optional photo ink cartridge for creating high-resolution pictures, the device maker said. The new printer will sell for $179.

The Round Rock, Texas, PC maker entered the printer business in March 2003 with Lexmark as its manufacturing partner, and has been expanding its product line to address different segments of the market.
