Even if your computer does not have a built-in Bluetooth receiver, you can

dongle is not working to resolve the situation. <br />
<p>1. Check the system requirements for the Bluetooth dongle.
If the system does not fit all the requirements, the device will not work. The
requirements for the Bluetooth dongle can be printed in the manual and
packaging. You can compare that with what is running on your computer by
clicking "Start" "Control Panel" and "System".

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.
