    Default how to share my usb dongle internet with my other wifi devices.

    Hello friends,

    I need a little help. I use MTS usb dongle for internet on my laptop. I have a phone and tablet that have wifi capability. Now I want to use my MTS Internet for my phone and tablet thru wifi.

    i dont know how to do that. Do i need a wireless router to be set up at home?

    Please suggest which wireless router will help as i dont have DSL or MTNL/BSNL internet connection. i have an MTS USB internet which i want to share with my wifi enabled gadgets.

    Thanks
    DRAY

    There are many routers that support USB modems. You can just plug in the router like cable in ADSL router and it will work in more or less the same manner.

    You can also make one PC WiFi hotspot and connect others to it. You don't need to buy any hardware in this method, but that PC need to be on Windows 7 and the USB modem should be connected to it when you need internet on other devices.

    Default personal hotspot

    hi,

    first of all, Thanks for the quick reply. I use windows 7 ultimate. So you meant that if i have windoz 7 on my laptop then I can connect my android 2.2 and 2.3 devices without needing to use any router. right?

    And if i choose to go with the router option then what should i ask for in the market. Is there a specific type or name to it?

    if i am not mistaken, then there will be a router which will be set up and that usb dongle will be attached to my laptop and with my laptop's wifi the router will relay the internet further to android or windoz platformed devices. is it?

    Regards,

    Yes, install Connectify on your laptop and devices in range will be able to access WiFi through it.

    Router is a bit costly. In that case, you need to insert your modem into router which transmits the signal. By that way, you need not have to switch ON your laptop to access WiFi on other devices.

    You can ask for a router which has option to use with USB modem.

    Default connectify me

    hi,

    i have installed connectify and i am using WPA/WP2 PSK security mode. Good thing is that it reflects in my phonez wifi scanner. but it does not connect. It keeps on reflecting obtaining IP address and then later it shows "Disabled secured with WPA/WP2 PSK"

    Hi,

    Thanks for the reply. Yes I did enter the password. However, still in my phonez wifi scanner it shows obtaining IP address.

    I m sorry but the link you sent was too much technical in nature.

    I think, i will get the router.

    However, thanks for ur support.

    Much appreciated.

    I guess there is a software called Virtual router which serves for this purpose.I would reccomend you to switch on to any versions of windows 7 except the starter one.win 7 starter version is not configured for this.Check out this :

    Accessing wireless Internet using USB dongles has become popular over the past few years. The advantage of this type of Internet is that you can take it anywhere you want to, without having to get tied down by cables of wired internet. But one of the major woes that have been attributed to this type of Internet is that it cannot be shared with another computer in an easy way, or so it has been assumed. But the fact is that you can easily achieve it by using just a router, without any additional software
