I connect my HSDPA (High-Speed Downlink Packet Access) modem to my desk top and access Internet. I want to know whether it is possible to connect a laptop also, and access internet at the same time. (like a Wi-Fi router with ADSL)
An HSPDA modem is a device that allows the user to access mobile broadband. What you’ll want to make sure you have is an HSDPA Router, also sometimes known as a hot spot. Then it should support multiple devices. You will need to check the specification for your device to see how many devices it can support.
If you are connecting the desktop computer to the router via USB, you probably won’t be able to connect to multiple devices at the same time. However, you can connect multiple mobile devices to the router at the same time.
