Assuming it's properly configured (I checked by printing from Windows) the next steps are required to set it up for wireless printing from Gentoo:

1. Install CUPS
2. Download drivers, and unpack somewhere. As of writing the URL was http://ftp.dell.com/FOLDER00947576M/1/B1160_B1160w_UnifiedLinuxDriver_1.01.tar.gz
3. as root run cp somewhere/cdroot/Linux/i386/at_root/usr/lib/cups/filter/rastertosamsungspl /usr/libexec/cups/filter/
4. (re)start cups (/etc/init.d/cupsd (re)start)
5. go to http://localhost:631/ -> Administration (it will ask root password) -> Add Printer -> select ipp, Continue -> ipp://your_printer's_ip/ipp/ , Continue -> put some name , Continue -> select Dell, click Browse, locate somewhere/cdroot/Linux/noarch/at_opt/share/ppd/b1160w.ppd, Add Printer
6. LibreOffice requires restart to pick up cups changes
