- Turn on your printer and a computer connected to your wireless network.
- Insert the Software and Documentation CD that came with your Dell printer into your computer's disc drive.
- Accept the terms of the License Agreement, and follow the directions from the software.
- Connect your USB cable between your computer and your printer, if the on-screen instructions ask you to. Disconnect the cable when it tells you to as well.
- Complete the installation process as instructed, and then configure your printer and align your cartridges [source: Dell].
