A wireless key board and mouse will come complete with all you need for them to operate on your machine, if a printer has wireless capabilty then it will come complete too.

The Dlink device is for networking two PC's or connecting a mobile phone with Bluetooth to your PC.

There is quite a range of cordless mice/keyboards but most don't use Bluetooth, which is generally more expensive. The Bluetooth version of my Logitech cordless optical mouse, for example, was £10 more.

These Bluetooth devices would normally be supplied with a transmitter/receiver that plugs into the PC's PS/2 port so you wouldn't be buying a separate USB Bluetooth adapter. Normal "cordless" devices won't work with Bluetooth - you must use Bluetooth-specific hardware.
