No information (yet) on the 966, but the Dell 920 is said to work with
the Lexmark Z600 driver here:
Not so for the AIO 946:

It's likely made by Lexmark (maybe the Lexmark X9350) but rebadged and
rechipped so you can only use Dell ink with it. There's a less than
glowing review of the Dell version here:

Dell's web site shows only Windows drivers for this printer. Lexmark
says no Linux drivers for the X9350, either.
Dell + Lexmark + AIO - (Linux|FreeBSD drivers) = no thanks.
There are wireless print servers and access points with printer ports
that will let you make most non-host-based printers wireless. Costs
more, but gives more choices. The openprinting.org site is a good place
to check printer compatibility.
