Can We Convert USB Dongle To WiFi?

The USB dongle or pocket modem connects to the internet only when you plug it in the USB slot.

Is there any way we can make them WiFi too?

That way I can work on laptop and other family members can also use internet through WiFi.

Unfortunately there is No other way except buying a tp-link 3g router

Can you name the router please? I will check.

Visit tp-link site and search under 3/4g routers

Cheap tenda model that will work. This model needs a usb power source http://www.czone.com.pk/network-products-routers-tenda-3g150m-wireless-n150-portable-3g-router-pakistan-p.1528.aspx

This one has a built in battery. http://www.czone.com.pk/network-products-routers-tenda-3g150b-150mbps-portable-3g-wireless-router-pakistan-p.650.aspx

A better alternative that requires power http://www.czone.com.pk/network-products-routers-tp-link-tl-mr3220-3g-3.75g-wireless-n-router-pakistan-p.530.aspx

Great! but those are "3G Routers" and I am talking about Wimax Dongles, like this one from Wateen - http://www.wateen.com/wp-content/themes/wateen/images/devices/large/Bolt.jpg

I had this device in the past, to get it connected I had to open a page every time, like 192.168.x.x, if I use a router then it will do the job automatically or not.

While searching for the same I found this device - http://www.malaysianwireless.com/2012/02/wn-wi-fi-network-extender-green-packet/

It is showing that we can just insert the pocket dongle to this WiFI extender and get it connected.

Do you know such device from TP-Link, Tenda.. or any other company?

Ah yes, these only work on PTCL EVO devices. Couldn't find one that would work on wimax

what a great links... very helpful.. thanks for this good sharing http://www.meraustad.com
