Heading off today to get a nice VAIO laptop for my wife.
The laptop has bluetooth and WLAN.
We have two printers (connected to a desktop PC): a Canon i560 inkjet and an Epson HL-2040 mono laser. Both printers have USB and "old-fashioned" sockets. Neither is network-capable.
Our router (see below) has WLAN, but I've only ever used it for our old laptop (see below) to access the internet.
I'd like to set things up so that she will be able to wander into the room with the laptop and start printing without having to mess around unplugging anything from anything else, which she hates.
There are some bluetooth printer adaptors I've found, but they seem to be a) Expensive, and b) only work with ultra-compact printers. Also something like this "TP-Link TL-WN321G 54Mbs USB Network Adaptor" which sounds like it may be a bit stressful to set up.
Am I missing something?
Is there an inexpensive, Dick Smithish way of doing this? (Either with Bluetooth or something else).
