I have a Dell 3100cn color laser network printer, but I am going to be moving into a wireless only environment soon and will need to make it wireless.  I know I can use something like the D-Link DWL-G730AP to serve as a bridge, but I would rather find an upgrade component for the printer if possible.  I have seen some info about a wireless device for the 3110cn, but I haven't found anything for the 3100cn and I don't know if it is because it does not support it, or if it is just hard to find.

Can anyone provide more information a wireless upgrade option for the 3100cn?

    I'm trying to find a place that sells it, but the articles that come up seem to reference the 3110, will it work with the 3100 as well?

    Yes it's designed for the 4 printers listed above. But you can also plug it into any supported wireless print server

    Thanks.  I try to avoid the wireless print servers since that requires an extra power cord, device, and wire, the internal wireless makes it a cleaner solution.  Thanks, I will either go with the JG333 or use a cheap wireless bridge.  I have a wireless bridge for my AIO, but the AIO has a USB port and the bridge has a USB power cable so it's minimal hassle.
