    I tried that. I got a Kensington adapter for the printer and the laptop has one. It recognized there was a bluetooth printer but when it tried to add it I got an message saying unknown printer and asking for the driver. I downloaded the driver for the printer (more than once) but it still doesn't recognize the printer. Still unknown printer. Any suggestions. Do you think buying the Canon adapter would fix the problem? Wouldn't it still be looking for a driver?

Well,I'm not really an expert on Bluetooth, but let me try...

Which version of Windows are you running? If you have Windows XP SP2 or above, the Microsoft Bluetooth stack should be installed on your system. First make sure that the Kensington bluetooth adapter is compatible with the printer and the OS. From what I heard Canon sell a separate Bluetooth adapter for about $80 for this, but I'm not too sure.

Secondly, ensure that the built-in Bluetooth Stack or Software has the required Profile for your printer.

Next, put your printer in "discover" mode (see printer manual for more info ). Use the Bluetooth Connection Utility software that came with the built-in Bluetooth stack to "discover" the printer. Follow the instructions by the Bluetooth stack manufacturer on how to pair and connect Bluetooth devices to your built-in Bluetooth stack.

Please also see THIS article. although it is meant for the Logitech DeNovo keyboard, it can be used for any Bluetooth enabled devices. (Just replace the DeNovo wit your printer in the article.

But mainly, make sure that the Kensington adapter is compatible...

Hope that helps..

I have a Toshiba Satellite A135-S4487 laptop, After install Windows XP system operating, only Touchpad is not working. How to repair this problem? Thank you for your support.

We you have installed the operating system (windows xp) but seems like you have not yet installed the drivers

There would be a second disc that you might have got from the manufacturer (application & drivers or Driver and utility CD) please insert the same and try to install the touchpad drivers

Else you can always download the same from the manufacturer website
