Is there anyway to connect a Tablet to the Internet when away from home ie no wireless from my modem and where there is no wireless hotspot.

I can connect my laptop in these circumstances with a dongle but they don't seem to do one for a tablet.

Someone mentioned personal hotposts but according to the O2 shop this wouldn't do the trick.

Any help or ideas would be appreciated

Are you on O2? If so surprised they didn't point you in the direction of this O2 | Mobile Broadband Pocket Hotspot | Your own personal, portable hotspot to get online, on the move.

Would allow you to connect up to 5 devices by wifi to the dongle in order to share a mobile broadband connection.

If not on O2 then the other mobile operators do similar personal hotspot dongles.

No - Maplins told me something about Personal Hotspots and that you got them from a Mobile Phone shop so I went to the O2 Shop. They said it would only connect to a general hotspot. I thought this was a bit pointless and said I couldn't see tne point of that and told them I wanted to connect a Tablet to the Internet where there wasn't a hotspot and they said it couldn't be done. I will certainly follow your link

Cheers

If you're not already with O2 then the equivalent units from the Three network are a good deal, see Mobile Broadband - Internet Dongles, Mobile Wifi & Micro SIM - Three and check out the Mifi section
