Is your "dongle" a 3g modem? 3g modems are often rated at speeds which are practically impossible to reach. Your connection speed will vary depending on the weather, the materials your house is made of and how strong the signal is from the base station. You might notice that your upload speed is especially poor, this is normal for 3g modems. That being said, there are a few things you can do to improve the situation. You can try to get the modem near a window with a better signal, you can install a program like FDM ( which makes a huge difference for download speeds on a g3 modem (I get 50kbps downloads without the program, 400kbps downloads with it). If all else fails you can contact T-Mobile and report a problem with the network - again, it worked for me.

Can not connect to the internet through a router

Routers/switches are fine if a little past their use by date for a laptop, even if you are not a road warrior most of us in Australia are at present enjoying the 3g broadband network whereby we pay AU$78 for a prepaid broadband dongle it uses the cellphone network at a reasonable (for Australia) 7.5 mbps. The good part is you plug the dongle into a USB port, it loads its own drivers and software and in about 3 minutes you are on line surfing the nett. You can use your old ISPs mail box but I reckon Google Chrome with Gmail (google them) is the fastest, most secure and easiest way to go. Hope you have someone like Vodaphone near you, remember this will need to be in an area or cell which has 3g or 4g coverage. Good luck John

To connect to a basic wireless network (WAN) you need to have a 802.11g (or n) network adapter, I would assume that this is located inside the laptop already (99% of new laptops come with a wireless adapter installed). You should not need a dongle.
