bluetooth a printer

hi guys i was wondering if it is possible to buy a bluetooth adapter for an epson stylus c86 printer so i can print from my vista laptop without trailing upstairs to plug my laptop into the printer everytime i want to print something

if the c86 is usb and your laptop has wireless get a wireless usb adapter,i use a d-link dp-310

you have to remember bluetooth is short range. it might not reach to your printer.

how short is the range?
i only want to go from the living room to the bedroom above

thanks bobbybowls
i think mine will have enough range cos the printer isn't more than 10m away but mobiles work at more than 1m.
does anyone have any reccomendations for either
1. a bluetooth adapter for my printer or
2. a wireless adapter
i would have liked to use the bluetooth but if wireless is going to be better then i will go with that
