Wireless USB with XBee Pro

0 votes
Hello everyone.

I'm very new to XBee and have finally gotten them to work how I wanted them to. I'd like to expand my use of XBees in my project and use them as a "Wireless USB Cord." If that's what I should call it. Basically I have an Epson Thermal Printer that i'd like to connect to an XBee and then connect another one using a USB Adapter Board to the computer. You would have to use the green and white wires on the USB cord that's coming out of the printer, but how would I connect those to the XBee where I could send data to the printer?

I hope this makes sense.

Thanks.
- Ryan

EDIT: Found this link online of a Belkin product: http://www.belkin.com/us/support-product?rnId=01t80000002G1SgAAK- this is something like what I want to do, but I would like to use an XBee of course.

the pinouts for the xbee module are listed on pg. 13 of the product manual:

that's the starting point. you'd then have to make sure that the received data was put in some format that your printer could handle.
