Hello all, i have Epson Stylus Photo RX600 all in one printer. What i would like to know is can i use this has a stand alone printer, i.e can i use it without having it plugged to my main pc? It connects to my pc via a usb port and i can use my laptop by wireless printing.
I've looked on the epson website but it dosent seem to say anything about using it by itself, just mentions abit about bluetooth connection, but i'm not to sure about that, although i do have a bluetooth connection, i just havent put it on my pc yet! I use windows xp.
Thanks for anyone's help,

Yes it does work as a stand-alone printer, without the need for the PC to be on.

Thanks for that Technotiger, although perhaps i never made it quite clear in the first post, i was wondering if i can use the printer with my pc, with out being connected to it via the usb port, can i use it wirelessly with my main pc like i can with my laptop?

Again Yes, using the Bluetooth option.

You might also be able to use it 'wireless' by including it in your home network ... click here

The Bluetooth dongle has to be connected to your PC, after installing the Bluetooth software. When you switch your printer on, the PC should 'find' it via the Dongle.

If you have a Mobile Phone with Bluetooth capabilities, the Dongle should also find that too, and anything else within range which has Bluetooth capabilities. So you could if you wish, also upload/download stuff to/from your Mobile Phone.

Be aware, the Bluetooth may also find any nearby neighbours Bluetooth gadgets!
