Windows 7: Enabling BlueTooth on non-BlueTooth printer

Enabling BlueTooth on non-BlueTooth printer

Hello,
I am soon to be without a Wifi home network, but I'd like to keep my non-BT printer (Brother DCP-585CW) wireless. Is it possible to connect a BT receiver/converter to the printer's USB port and print wireless or is this science fiction? Perhaps naively, it may seem that this would (only) require a BT-to-USB converter.
If it is possible, can you please direct me to (a) seller(s) of such a device?
Thank you for your input!

Wow! That's interesting. I didn't think that would work seen as how there's an OS and driver middle man involved with BT devices in large part.

Its not clear your asking about blue tooth but talk about wifi is the printer using wifi or bluetooth? the specs sho it only has wifi so all you need is a cheap wifi router and connect pc and printer to it no need for internet. You can pick up ols router for £5 as the printer uses old protocol
