    Dell Wireless Printer Adapter 3300


    (Page 1 of 5 )

    Wireless, wireless, everything is moving to wireless. We’ve had wireless desktops (keyboard and mice) for years now.  We’ve had wireless networking for almost as long. Today, we will be taking a look at a wireless print server by Dell, the 3300. This small device allows you to take a USB printer and attach it to your wireless network.

    So, to be honest, when this device first landed on my desk, I was like “Wireless printer adapter?  Why?”  I mean, if you want to have a printer on the network, you plug it into your network.  Otherwise, you attach it to your PC, and then share it on the network if you feel nice.  But why would you need to have a printer attached to a wireless network?

    So then I thought about it a little more.  For people who need access to a printer, where there is only a wireless network available, a wireless print server actually does make sense. 

    If you plug a printer into a machine and then share that printer with the network users, then that machine needs to be turned on in order for any of the other users to utilize the printer. Next, suppose all of the machines that use that network are notebook computers. This would make the idea of keeping the printer plugged in all the time unrealistic, since the computer might not be there all the time.

    Enter Dell. They sell the Dell Wireless Printer Adapter 3300 for just such occasions, when you need a printer hooked to the wireless network, and attaching it to a PC is just not an option.

    Here’s the specs on this adapter:

    • Bandwidth: 2.4 GHz
    • Cable (s) included: USB Cable, Power Cable, AC Adapter
    • Compliant Standards: 802.11b, 802.11g
    • Connectivity Technology: Wireless
    • Data Transfer Rate: Up to 54 Mbps
    • Device Type: Print Adapter
    • Dimensions (WxDxH) / Weight: 3.6" x 5.2" x 1.4" / 25 lbs
    • Authentication Method: 40/104-bit WEP / WPA Encryption
