dongle

Hi ,

 

I have a BT Dual band 2x2 wireless usb dongle, will this only work when I'm in a bt hotspot or will it give me mobile internet connection?

Re: dongle

Welcome to this forum.

 

Yes it will, its only a normal WiFi dongle, and not a mobile 3G Internet dongle.

Re: dongle

Thanks for that,  but what i don't understand is why would I want a dongle that does the same as my laptop and tablet?

Re: dongle

Hi kjcrofty,

 

Some older laptops and if you had a desktop PC may not have a built-in Wireless (Wifi) card and hardware built in and therefore a Wifi enabled dongle is needed.

 

Also the BT Dual band dongles supports both the current standard 2.4Ghz and the newer 5Ghz bands, which some older Wifi cards and hardware may not have supported.
