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 site is a good place 
to check printer compatibility.
