Gadgets and Gizmos (India) - - MOBILES -

With the in­creas­ing num­ber of por­ta­ble de­vices like lap­tops, tablets and mu­sic play­ers we need to be con­nected to the In­ter­net con­stantly. Wi-Fi routers are good at keep­ing all these de­vices on­line, but things be­come tough when you are on the move. You al­ways have the op­tion of buy­ing a data don­gle or a por­ta­ble Wi-Fi hotspot. Al­ter­atively, if you own the lat­est An­droid or Win­dows smart­phone, you can use the phone’s data con­nec­tion to cre­ate a se­cure Wi-Fi net­work of your own. This op­tion is avail­able in your set­tings menu as “Wi-Fi hotspot, In­ter­net teth­er­ing or In­ter­net shar­ing”. You can se­cure this net­work with a pass­word and con­nect up to five de­vices to surf the Net. In the US and some other coun­tries, op­er­a­tors have spe­cial plans for In­ter­net teth­er­ing. But thank­fully, In­dian car­ri­ers don’t charge ex­tra for mo­bile hotspots.
