Many Internet / Phone carriers provide service via USB. You may need a micro USB adapter. Test at a local vendor before purchase.

They also hotspot devices. A small mobile wireless internet router. This may be the best solution.

You can even configure a cell phone to provide internet.

SOURCE: wired LAN

A usb ethernet adapter does not cost much and no troubleshooting needed.
I assume your trying to get your built-in card to trigger have you checked the bios to be certain it is enabled.
and go to control panel check the system device manager to see what it says about the ethernet.
does it show up under my network places and if it does is it bridged. Get properties on it.

SOURCE: Wireless internet connection problem

You may be having a problem with the settings in internet explorer. If you open your internet explorer and then click tools then internet properties you will have a window pop up with several tabs. Click the tab that says connections. Down towards the bottom right is a button that says LAN SETTINGS click that and make sure that there is a check in the box that says Automatically Detect Settings. Click OK Click APPLY Click OK. Restart Internet Explorer and see if it connects.

If that doesnt work reset your wifi adapter. Step by step instructions here:

http://www.icompute.info/fix_wifi.htm

If that doesnt work then open the command prompt by clicking Start then run (vIf you have Vista click in the search menu above the start button) Type CMD and hit enter. You should see a black and white screen that looks like old DOS. Dont worry about what the prompt says. Type IPCONFIG and hit enter. You should see your networking adapters. You should see one with a 192.168.-.- (Linksys routers normally make the first computer 192.168.1.100)
If you see a 196.254.-.- or media not connected then your device is not connected. This will at least tell you if windows is getting a proper IP address.

Some people might say your WinSock files need to be repaired If everything still does not work then you may have a WinSock file or files that are missing or corrupt. This is probably not the case since you can connect hard wired but if you want to try repairing your winsock files then with XP you can use a program from the internet called winsockfix. If you have Vista then when the no connection error comes up you should see a link that asks about trying to fix the problem. If you see this click it and let Vista fix Itself.

If none of this works then try a different adapter. Hope this helps...

I'll assume you are able to start up your browser (e.g. Internet Explorer) ... and type in the URL (address) www.google.com
You can then select (from the top bar), your desired google page.... and set that page as your default home page.

How can I add an external WiFi Donegal to a median life pad


WiFi dongles are developed for PC usage. A tablet, does not redirect internet info to or from a USB connector. For every USB device you need a driver and a program on a computer. As long as you don't have the programs or app for any dongle, no use to connect any dongle to any tablet.

3g dongle support


Hi
Seems like it needs to be configured, though not all tablets support dongles i.e Karbonn-Samsung Galaxy and lenovoA1000 & A30
First, (1) put 3G sim into dongle and connect dongle to tablet. You may have to wait several minuets for tablet to find internet, if it does not, continue as below.
2. Now go to 'settings' and select the 'More' option .
3. Select 'Mobile Networks' > 'Access Point' Name (APN) 4. Then select New APN option.

5. All you have to do now is make the following changes in the bracketed entities [ Name, APN and Dial Number]:-
-> Set the network name. Eg:- For Tata photon just write Tata or TP or anything, as you like it.
-> Set the APN,> search the net for your service provider's APN. Then write it precisely.
-> All the dongles come with dial number. Check your dongle purchase paper or the manual or just search it Google. And then fill the same here as the Dial Number, save and you are done. eg. For Tata Docomo it is #999 and Reliance it is #777.
NOTE:
After plugging the dongle, a default APN gets created in the APN setting's page.Try to feed the settings by creating a new APN.
Karbonn, Samsung Galaxy and Lenovo A1000 & A3000 tablet does not support dongle.
By far and large the above steps will work with all the dongles and Tablets. You could also go to 'You Tube' and seach for Video info which may be quite helpful. Regards Silverfox160

My Samsung tablet wll not let me load Facebook newsfeed.I can not log in to Google. It does let me access games


Make sure the wifi/3g is turned on and connected to a network with internet access. You might need to refresh your router and modem as my Galaxy Tab sometimes gets messed up if I log on to another wifi network away from home. i.e. McDonalds/Pizza Hut etc. I may be connected to my wifi, but my tablet doesn't have a correct IP address if it has one at all. The internet speed can be a factor as games don't use a much bandwidth as apps like Google and Facebook.

Will not connect to internet


Strange. Did you go to settings, connect to your home wireless network, and enter your password? Are you any further from the router than other devices you say do not have the issue? I've seen this, weaker signal, when people connected to the guest wireless network. Otherwise, I do not understan why it's happening unless it's an issue with the configuration of the wireless tablet adapter. You may have to do some advanced work on the adapter, but I don't have enough info to be able to tell you, for sure.

Can I use a 4G plug in connect USB with my Nexus 7?


(Using a WIFI Hotspot is definitely recommended. Connecting your 4G USB dongle to the Nexus 7 will drain the battery quickly since the USB is using the Nexus's battery to power on. This is what I use) but here's how to get your 4g usb dongle to work
Your device must be rooted, and you would need a USB OTG cable/adapter. Here's an example of an OTG USB cable -6c4749a3-0b72-4ebc-8cb6-60f7bfb77d23.jpgThis app should work on any nexus 7 and it is very simple just install the app and enter your apn of your operator connect your dongles via otg cable and it will work the app available on google play store called ppp widget here is the link it is for rooted device

I have brought a google nexus tablet. how do i connect to the internet. i do not have a a modem at home


You can connect to a free WiFi site at such places as Starbucks, MacDonalds, at some shopping centers and at the airport terminals.
Have the tablet's WiFi turned on and it will automatically detect any wireless WiFi site within range of your tablet. Some site have encryption enabled and you won't be able to connect to these wireless sites.
