    Hola! :mrgreen:

    Well, I recently shifted to a new city. I previously had a wi-fi connection at home, with my own router. Now I plan to get a 3G USB dongle to access internet through my laptop, so that I have the mobility.

    I am planning to get a Reliance Netconnect 3G USB dongle (7.2MBPS). Can I connect it with my Belkin G Wireless Router so that other devices in my home can access internet?

    nope.

    You could connect to Internet from a computer, and then use that computer's Wireless adaptor to create an Adhoc wireless network where Internet is being shared.

    I don't know whether this will work or not, but give it a shot. Even if it does work, I doubt whether it will be smooth.

    Sorry for reviving an old thread but I found this solution searching online can anyone try it out and see if it works? I'm planning to buy a tablet and I have a reliance netconnect wireless modem which I'd like to share connection with the tab. I think this was tried using Linux.
