Make printer wireless: what do I need?

Greetings, I have an Epson CX6000 all-in-one printer. I would like to configure it so I can print to it wirelessly from my laptop. My laptop already supports Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity (I use a Bluetooth headset and have a wireless router for my Internet service).

Ideally, I would like to have a small component that I plug directly into the printer and does not require an external power adapter. I'm thinking a Wi-Fi connection would be preferable to Bluetooth since it has a bigger range and my printer is in a completely separate room. But I'd use Bluetooth if it's my only option. Unfortunately, Web searches on this topic have not been very informative.

Here are the options that look like they may work:

* HP Q6274A Wireless Printer Adapter - 802.11b/g: The Wi-Fi USB dongle option

* HP 802.11g Wireless Printer Card: The Wi-Fi CompactFlash card option

* HP bt500 Bluetooth USB 2.0 Wireless Adapter: The Bluetooth USB dongle option

Can anyone advise? Many thanks.
