I just purchased a nice used Dell 3115cn multifunction printer. I have printing, faxing and scanning working just fine. The only thing I cannot get working is the built in wireless adapter. In order tho set up the wireless adapter I need the 3115cn UM078 Installation CD that came with the printer. I did not receive the installation CD when I purchased the used Dell printer.
Can someone direct me as to how I might obtain just the setup/installation portion of the disk to be able to set up my Dell wireless on this printer? I do understand that I cannot obtain the entire contents of the CD because of the licensed ScanSoft PaperPort application that is included on the disk. Again I do not need anything but the files to set up the 3115cn built in wireless.
Hopefully someone on this forum or a Dell employee can point me the right direction to be able to obtain the needed wireless set up files.
Any help or direction is appreciated.
Thank you for your reply.

Hi Scott H,
Welcome to Dell Community Forum.
The Dell Wireless USB 3310 Printer Adapter adds wireless networking capability to the Dell 3115cn color laser printers. The drivers to use the adapter are included with the printer drivers and utilities software. The Wireless USB 3310 Adapter connects to the Multi-Protocol Card (MPC), therefore the MPC must already be installed in the printer.
You have correctly mentioned that the printer drivers cd is required for the same however, since you do not have the cd, try downloading and installing the printer software from the Dell Support Website. The links mentioned below may be useful in this regard.

Hi Babita S.
Thanks for the response to my question about obtaining the needed installation files to be able to set up the 3115cn wireless adapter. The three links you provide all have very good information for installing the USB 3310 Adapter, but none of the links provide any way to obtain the needed files that are only on the 3115cn UM078 Installation CD. The links you provide all start with:
Insert the Dell Laser Printer Drivers & Utilities CD in a system on the network.The Dell Printer Installation setup window appears.
I have looked at every driver link I can find at the Dell web site and nowhere can I find the needed set up files for the wireless. The driver links contain all other needed drivers, but not the needed setup files for the wireless adapter.
Is their any other way for me to obtain the needed files to be able to set up the 3115cn wireless adapter?
Thanks again for the help!
Hi Scott H.,
The software that you are looking for is a complementary software that is only shipped at the point of purchase of the printer. Try to contact the original owner of the printer for the cd, if possible.
Or, if you know somebody who owns a similar printer and has the printer installation cd, you can use the same to install the printer drivers. I know these are workarounds which may or may not be possible but unfortunately, if the drivers on the Support website did not prove helpful then, these are the only options available.
I have contacted the original owner of the printer and I was told the CD was not available. The printer was purchased from Dell as a refurbished / used printer and I was told the installation CD did not come with the printer. I also do not know anyone else whom owns this model of Dell printer.
I have responded to your request for additional information about my printer. Thank you for anything you can do in this matter.
I have the same issue. I have a Dell 3115cn Laser Printer with the WLA3310 USB Wireless adapter. When I changed my home wireless network it quit working. I inserted the cd but it now longer works. I am not able to find the installer file to run the needed steps listed in the following articles. Please advise. Thanks
I bought my 3115cn from Dell in 2009. I just bought the hardware to add wireless capability. I had the CD but have moved twice. I don't have a clue where it is or even if I have it. There must be somewhere to download this file. Help please!!
