Hi all

 I have an Epson 320R printer connected to PC with XP via USB cable. Would it be possible to connect a Bluetooth dongle to the USB at the front of the printer and run both wireless from my Nexus 10, and cable for PC.

  Cheers John

I don't know about Bluetooth, but you can use a Verizon Jetpack or a WRT54G Ethernet bridge to do the same effect. The copier techs at my office have had success with this.

You would have to go back to Epson to get the proper BT USB device.  Most HP units have them as a $15. option but there's won't work you yours.

As mjd420nova said it will depend on if the Epson supports it.  You'll have to contact Epson and see if they have an option for connecting a blue tooth adapter via the USB port.
