i have now got bluetooth on my laptop. i also have an epson c86 printer which i don't think has bluetooth built in (it was too cheap for that).
my question is can i plug something into my printer to make a bluetooth connection with my laptop? if so what do you recomment?

Bluetooth printer adapters - click here

Just be careful about connectivity with the adapters, which can be USB, Parallel, Ethernet, PCMCIA etc.

THANKS
THE PRINTER WOULD NORMALLY CONNECT TO MY PC WITH A USB CABLE. WOULD THIS BE THE BEST TYPE TO USE IN THIS CASE AS I KNOW NOTHING ABOUT BLUETOOTH

You need to get a Bluetooth Printer Adapter that has a USB connection to link to your Printer. What I'm suggesting is that you should be careful not to get a Bluetooth adapter that has an incompatible connection for your printer - interfaces such as Parallel (Centronics), Ethernet & PCMCIA won't connect.

The Belkin model should be suitable - click here
