I assume that your computer has a wifi and bluetooth connectivity.
Make sure that you configure your printer to be discoverable by your computer. as it should allow each other to connect with each other. you should pair them first just like phone pairing to a computer. there should be an instruction how to do that in your printer console

You do not need a USB drive for this. Once the printer is on the wireless network, you insert the install CD in the computer and it should walk you through the steps. It should ask you how you are connecting, USB or wireless. Tel it wireless and it should find the printer.

It might help if you told us the steps you have taken and where the install fails.

You do not need a USB cable to setup a wireless printer, that's why is called wireless.

And you certainly don't need a FireWire to USB cable. FireWire doesn't even come into play even if you we're to connect a printer via USB.
