I re­cently shifted home and had to dis­con­nect my BSNL broad­band con­nec­tion since the com­pany says there is no space for a new con­nec­tion in “DP”. I am think­ing of get­ting a 3G don­gle but I won­der whether I can cre­ate a Wi-Fi net­work with such a don­gle to con­nect my desk­top, lap­top and iPad.

Bhushit Dave, on email There are routers that con­vert data from don­gles into Wi-Fi net­work. Olive Tele­com, Lava Mo­bile, Edi­max, D-Link, Mi­cro­max, etc, all have such prod­ucts. But when buy­ing do check for the net­works these de­vices sup­port. Also, go for an in­de­pen­dent router and not one that will block your PC port. In­de­pen­dent routers are por­ta­ble and easy to use.
