Hi, If you are using Windows follow these steps:- Printing with Computers (Windows)via Bluetooth – Windows
Note:A different screen may be displayed depending on the application
you use. This section gives a description using the screens displayed under
Windows XP SP2.
Bluetooth communication distance: Approx. 10 meters in normal
1. Turn the printer on
and load paper. 2. Create a document or
open the file you want to print. 3. Open the Setup tab of
the printer driver. (1)Select 'Print' from theFilemenu of the application ThePrintscreen appears. (2)Select the printer to which you attached the Bluetooth unit such

The Print screen
Note: To check the paper
size, click the Page Setup tab. If it is different from the
size specified with the application, select the same size as that specified
with the application.
You can attach the printer directly through USB cable to your computer and print, or you can connect the printer and your computer to the same wireless network and then print using the wireless and your connection.
Internet is not necessary, only a communication path needs to be established. For this whether its your neighbor's wifi network, your own wifi network, a usb cable connection between your pc and printer etc printing will be accomplished.
yes vista, is non friendly as old oem hardware, so you must have a vista ompatible hardware. the bluetooth only works well bellow 5m radio, you can use a wireless router with usb port for printers, and your problem, is less confusing, but choose a good hardware, or else u giveup the printer.
If you have inserted the USB cable into the slot on the front of the printer, it will not print from the computer. That slot is for direct printing from a digital camera. You need to insert the USB cable into the port on the back/side of the printer. The port is almost square in shape, and should receive the end of the USB cable that is square with two rounded corners. The other end of the USB cable, much more rectangular, goes into the USB slot on your computer.
the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do
both and when the CD software program asks you to connect the printer
to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud
1) you need it to print from a laptop if you do not want to have to set up another computer, and mobile phone have bluetooth buit in 2) YES 3) set up the printer on another computer, and set it for sharing. Then make sure that you laptop is recognized in the network connections wizard, then on the laptop select add new printer and select the bullett that say a network printer. the rest is pretty easy, select browse for a printer or something, it is the first option, select it, say yes to all dialogue boxes, and let the computer do the rest.
