The USB is Australian Virgin broadband internet. It can only be plugged into only one USB port. I am not sure what sort of hub or USB connection I will need. Once plugged in I use a program from Virgin to activate the broadband. I would like to connect both my laptop and desktop computer to the internet at the same time. So should I just stop being tight and get different internet?
I asked someone else this and they told me this...
It's a 3G usb modem. It has a 3G sim card inside. It's possible to get a standalone 3G modem, with inbuilt wifi router. Modern laptops have inbuilt wifi. You can get a wifi USB dongle for the desktop. Plug the Virgin sim into the modem; voila!
There are some problems with this help:
My laptop picks up on wireless internet, but of course doesn't pick up on my USB internet when I plug it into a desktop computer.
What is a USB dongle?
I can't get the sim card out of the USB, so therefore I cannot plug the sim into a modem.
To clarify...I want to be able to plug the USB internet into assumably my desktop and be able to somehow connect the laptop to the same internet. I am happy to provide any other information
