    3G Dongle required, are there any?.

    Hi, I have just purchased a transformer and I need 3g connectivity for it, surely their is a dongle out there that will provide this. My present dongle is a 3 issued Huawei E1550, when I plug it into my TF the TF doesn't seem to notice, is this because the dongle is too old or is the TF and Android not capable of 3g connectivity?.

    Ultimately, this is a driver issue. The TF does not have any drivers to use any 3G USB aircards. The best option is to get a MiFi (I use a Verizon 4G/3G MiFi) that converts a cellular signal to a WiFi to be used by up to 5 devices at once.

    The other option is to use your cell phone to tether via Bluetooth or WiFi.

    You can probably upgrade your device for little or no money if your aircard is more than a year or two old.

    I have the Verizon 4G hotspot. Use it for the TF, my Lenovo laptop and my phone. Even had a meeting with 3 other people using it at the same time. 5GB a month is pretty decent and it has worked everywhere I've tried it, even deep in the North Georgia mountains.

    Hi, thanks for the quick response and the advice. I have looked at the Huawei E585 MiFi from 3, I was hoping just to get a dongle but will probably take your advice. Do you get reasonable speeds from your MiFi?.

    Yes, that should work. I got great speeds from my old 3G on Verizon (about 1Mbps down and 500 Kbps up) and it is sufficient for watching Netflix on the go (on my wife's iPad 2) or streaming music, etc. I am not sure how 3's network speeds compare to Verizon in the states. AT&T has faster 3G than Verizon so you may get faster speeds. I say go for it.

    I bought the huawei 585 from 3 on payg, and am pretty impressed with it. It's faster than my SGS for internet, and I get a pretty strong signal from almost anywhere, so far.
