Epson Epson Stylus Color 3000

Epson Stylus 3000 connectivity

Hi, I'm shopping around for some advice. I have an Epson Stylus colour 3000 printer which has, until recently, been running fine and dandy connected to and accessed via a networked (veteran) W98 machine via the parallel printer port. Then I moved office, up(?)graded to a wireless network (not old W98 machine friendly) and lo and behold I just can't access my E3000 as I can no longer access the only machine that has a parallel printer port! I thought it would be a simple matter to just plug the Epson into another machine but not so as the Epson has no other port and I only have port-less laptops these days! Any advice? I was hoping there might be a parallel-USB conversion cable or kit but not found one as yet.
Hi

Don't know where you are, but

should do the job.

There is a proper Epson version around somewhere too, but you might have trouble tracking one down.

Hi Paul - many thanks. I'm in the UK - that looks perfect. I've put the order in already. Cheers.
