Many of us might have old desktops at home which we will be using for watching movies, playing songs and working on some low end applications. Because our Old Desktops configuration probably would be a Intel p4 or a Intel Pentium D or an older version of AMD, also that the RAM would be around typically 512MB.

But still we use them for our daily use because the resale value of them in the market is very less as Electronic Devices are growing very fast and we are able to get high end devices at a lower cost so who wants to buy an Old Desktop PC. Now-a-days many of us are using Wi-Fi at home and because our Old PC’s typically don’t have a wireless capability built into it, we face difficulty to connect our Mobile Devices, laptops to our Desktop PC. Come’On guys Wireless Connectivity is the new trend, so i would like to introduce you to a device which would solve this problem .


It can be said that the wireless dongle is a piece of hardware which you have to just plug into your PC to provide wireless access to the PC with other networks and computers. So with the help of a wireless dongle, the hassles of using wires to connect computers, mobile phones and electronic devices, over short distances is eliminated.

These wireless dongles, which use 2.4 GHz radio waves in its communication are known as wireless dongles. This is the same frequency used in wireless routers and wireless internet access points so they can communicate with each other.

Many devices, like personal computers, PDA, GPS and mobile phones are created such that they can be interconnected seamlessly, to provide wireless communication through wireless dongles.


Though the newest laptops have wireless capabilities, most computers are not wireless compatible. It is possible to make these computers wireless compatible using wireless dongles. These wireless dongles are small finger sized devices that are connected to the computer through the USB port of the personal computer.

With this wireless dongle, it is possible to connect the PC to nearby mobile phones and other wifi devices, so that data can be safely and easily transferred between the two. So if you want some data on the computer, like addresses and phone numbers on a phone, all you have to do is to access the data through the wireless dongle.

Broadband Wireless Dongle or MODEM

Wireless broadband dongles work by communicating with a mobile mast and mobile network rather than connecting to another wireless device like the normal wireless dongle. This means that you can wirelessly connect to the internet from any location that has a mobile signal.

Mobile broadband works using either a small portable USB modem (often called a dongle, or broadband stick), a data card or a built-in device (on some laptops) to connect to the internet using the same signal mobile phones use. This means, wherever you are, as long as you can get a signal from your mobile broadband provider, you can connect to the web.
