Err possibly but would be very expensive.

Why Bluetooth you can wifi to a printer plugged into a pc wink
All you have to do is share it.

You can now get wifi printers now smile
And there pretty good on price too.

Yeah, well some modern printers even have Bluetooth built into them.

But it is better to use a Wifi print server imho, although it does come at a cost as with everything.

When bluetooth was originally conceieved, the idea was that by 2005, every printer and other peripheral would be using it, we would be in a truely wireless world... but thanks to the unexpected high cost of bluetooth chips (licensing) as well as the lacklustre below par performance of the technology, it never really hit on.

Shame really. frown

I remember seeing a tommorows world style programme about bluetooth and that you would be able to bluetooth many appliances in your home to tell them to perform a task, i.e the bath to run at 30oC to 75% full, or the kettle to boil, or the lights to dim etc.

It could have been great.

Something like this would be what you are looking for:

You're printer plugs into it, and it acts almost like another PC on the network, albeit just a printing station.

No problemo, just had a quick scout on eBay and found a Linksys device, pretty much the same, but a fair bit cheaper even after p+p:
