    Wired to wireless internet using dongles


    Somewhere our phones do not have any data plan . That place has a desktop with internet connection . No wifi card builtin and since*It is an ALL in one computer we cannot install pci* wifi card. We can only have wifi adapter or dongles on a usb port.

    How safe is to create a hotspot using a dongle . If i use vpn over wifi to connect to the company's network , is there any chance of vulnerability ?*

    Also , keep in mind the wired internet is LAN based and the company is reluctant a bit that using dongle will expose the network to sniffers.

    Can they hack through the adhoc network created by the dongle into my our LAN* ?*

    Please provide suggestions.

    Thanks.

    :)

  2. Wireless laptop - wired desktop - internet

    I'd recommend a wireless router. Plug the desktop into the router via wired cable. Plug your Internet device into the router. And then the laptop will have wireless Internet access.

    Most desktops have wired integrated. Most laptops have wireless integrated. All you should need is a router and maybe some cables. Wireless routers start around $50 USD.

    Dongle is working properly but showing no internet

    Hi Monica,

    Just to clarify, are you using a WiFi dongle to connect to the internet instead of the built in WiFi adapter of your device? Or are you using a desktop PC and is the WiFi dongle to connect to the internet? For now, what we can suggest is to follow all of
    the recommended troubleshooting steps on this article to resolve the issue. Be sure to click
    Show all to see all of the instructions. Please follow all of the recommended so we could troubleshoot further.

    If the issue would still persist after doing all of the steps, please answer these questions:

    • What is the make and model of your device?
    • Were there any updates/changes to your device prior to the issue happening?

    We'll be waiting for your updates.
