Connect Dongle to Android Tablet

Often we find connecting a dongle to our Tablet PCs a big task set in front us. But it is very simple as you will know it shortly. Here are the easy steps to connect a dongle to an Android tablet.


tablet-with-dongleNote :  In few tablet on connecting the dongle. The tablet automatically set the APN. So it recommended to wait for 5-10 minutes after attaching the dongle to tablet. Also disable the sleep mode in tablet.

1.First connect the dongle to the tablet and wait for it to read the dongle automatically, if not follow step 2 onwards.

2. Now go to Settings in your tablet and select the More option which appears next.

3. Select Mobile Networks  -> Acess Point Name[APN].

4. Then select New APN option.

5. All you have to do now is make the following changes in the bracketed entities [ Name, APN and Dial Number]:-

-> Set the network name. Eg:- For Tata photon just write Tata or TP or anything, as you like it.

-> Set the APN, search the net for your service provider’s APN. Then write it precisely.

-> All the dongles come with dial number. Check your dongle purchase paper or the manual or just search it Google. And then fill the same here as the Dial Number, save and you are done. eg. For Tata Docomo it is #999 and Reliance it is #777.


  • After plugging the dongle, a default APN gets created in the APN setting’s page.Try to feed the settings by creating a new APN.
  • Karbonn, Samsung Galaxy and Lenovo A1000 & A3000 tablet does not support dongle.

By far and large the above steps will work with all the dongles and Tablets. Still if you find any difficulty, feel free to leave a comment below, mentioning your devices name and model. We will come to your help As Soon As Possible :

The network is not detected automatically. Still I tried configuring an APN with name: Reliance; APN: #777; User: net; pwd: net; MMC: 405; and MNC: 10. Other feilds left blank. My dongle connection was taken in Karnataka (Bangalore) circle. As instructed I ensured that wi-fi is disabled and data/roaming buttons are enabled. Preferred network type was selected 3G. Android 4.4.2 is running.
    Could you please help make this setup? Please let me know if you need any further details. Thanks in advance.

  • anand

    I have just purchased Milagrow TabTop 7.16 pro. It runs on Android 4.0.4 It supports 3G USB Dongles. But whenever I put in my Reliance NetConnect dongle, it displays message ‘Damaged SD card..’.
    So, how to make this dongle work ?
    So, will somebody help me to configure these dongles to work with my tablet

    • Tablet Guru

      “Damaged SD card” message appears because the Reliance Net connect has SD card slot and when you plugged in dongle to the tablet, its card slot must be empty, so it shows “Damaged SD card”. There is nothing to worry about it.
      I will also recommend to view this video.
      In this when we give the the default Reliance Netconnect settings, tablet did not get connected to internet. But When Tata-Photon settings were given it worked. Try it out, it might work. :)

    • Shubham pandey

      If u want to buy a dongle then get a wifi dongle like of tata docomo released recently this month earlier, use it by making a wifi hotspot by plugging it into a power source. It’s easy and fast. Or if ur’e not able to do this much so get a wifi modem/router of like D-link or iball , make ur own wifi state.

      To check whether the tablet is connected to Internet or not, see the right bottom of the screen. Near the “Time” option.
      To get 3G speed on tablet.
      Goto Settings-> More-> Mobile network. There un-check the option ” Use only 2G network”.

    Can you plz figure out this problem.

  • bebolulu


    I think there is something wrong about the procedure or the info given here. The problem faced by majority of the people and me is they cannot save the APN after they feed the data. When i click “save”, the window just closes and there is no new APN at all. Someone told to feed the data and wait for 10-30 secs and click back-button and it will be saved, but this did not work as well. Any solutions for this?

    • Tablet Guru

      This issue is there in the few tablets. Will update the info regarding how to solve this problem, very soon.
      Thanks for writing.:)

      • bebolulu


        Here is an update: as i said, the APN will not save, but as i tried the ” wait for 10-30 secs and click back-button” thing, i discovered something. The APN will be saved if you feed all the data except the MNC and MCC and press the “home” button, not the “back” button. But that is also useless since once you come again and edit settings of that saved APN and add MNC and MCC, it disappears or gets deleted as well. Hope you can find a solution to the problem. During my research on the problem, i read that the APN is not saving since the tablet or the OS is not accepting the MCC & MNC. Thanks for replying, anyways.
