3 E5331 WiFi USB Dongle. 4.8 5 29 29
Great bit of kit Just what we needed, no need to pay costly wifi fees on caravan club sites anymore. With a bit bit of careful lining up it works with the micro sim out of my 3G Nexus as well so we can now both browse to our hearts content 21 January 2014
Brilliant to purchase with the ipad! I purchased this when buying an ipad! It's cheaper than buying the ipad with 3G! It works fab! I take it away on holidays with me and if I go visiting family and friends! I would highly recommend! 09 January 2014
super fast wifi I bought this item, for the four tablets I purchased as presents for my children and husband. The connection is instantly available all four tablets are on line instantly! well worth the money, highly recommend purchasing this item. 09 January 2014
1st class 1st class item, no problem,s setting up work,s very well and very fast . Highly recommended item. 08 January 2014
Graet gadget This really is a great invention as I can take it with me in the car or on a train and check emails etc. Good stuff. 01 October 2013
Mobile wifi on demand! I bought this for using while out and about in my VW camper and at the norfolk coast where it is impossible to get a wifi or 3g signal. I charged the thing up, plugged it in and connected it to the laptop and instant wifi :) Very pleased with the product. It means i can now keep up to date with any business orders i get while away and surf the net as i would at home. Great product. 25 September 2013
Reliable Wifi solution An excellent product, I am working away and am using this as my "home" broadband. No problems using this with ps3 or ps Vita, NAT type 2 consistently with no lag or disconnects; fast browsing and video buffering both on iPhone and laptop. Easy to top up from a connected device (through web browser) with reasonable pricing and consistently strong coverage. It will work without configuration straight out of the box but does have a full range of config options if desired(DMZ, port forwarding etc). 18 September 2013
A brilliant piece of technology would def recommend 10 September 2013
Excellent product! Really easy to set up even for a technophobe like me! I don't use the internet much at home so didn't want to pay for a permanent connection, this has proved really useful. 20 August 2013
great item ! Bought this to go with my new tablet. Works straight out of the box and is simply amazing. Get really good speeds and signal. I'm more than pleased with it. 14 August 2013
good wifi tried it once so far seems good, ran out of time which came with it, got to top it up now.Its a good idea if you travel a lot. 13 August 2013
its hard to set up This was confusing to me to use so I am still learning how to use it ! 13 August 2013
Amazing How can a little device like this be so fast I wonder ? I find it hard to see the difference in the speed between this and my home broadband . What an amazing dongle this is , 16 July 2013
Amazing get one! I live in a rural area and its a nightmare for signal. Got one of these and it worked straight away, also i took it abroad with me and it worked there to. Would def recommend to anyone having problems with internet. 04 July 2013
Brilliant bit of kit Considering this is a mobile broadband connection the speed and reliability are brilliant. I had the same unit on Tmobile/Orange which was shocking which is strange as mobile phone coverage is brilliiant? I use it for Xbox live. 26 June 2013
My internet problem solved Excellent product. Works where a 3G dongle would not.......Very pleased. 22 May 2013
great purchase easy to set up and use in under 5 mins.quality was good and worked as emergancy wifi no problems 22 May 2013
Very Useful Item This is very easy to use. Just insert the sim, plug it in and it installs the relevant programs. Hey presto you are on the internet. It seems just as quick as most home broadband on the usb connection, but slows down a bit when you start connecting wifi devices to it. This is to be expexted and is not a major drawback. On the bad side the wifi password comes written in very small text on a small bit of card in the box so is easy to lose. I would advise writing it down somewhere safe as doon as you get it. Otherwise very good and yiu should get one Dave 16 May 2013
This is a great piece of kit. It was against some pretty informed advice from professional computer experts in the family that I purchased this item. I'm extremely glad I ignored them. What you need to know is .. Good Price. Everything is in the box that you need and it's simple to set up. Certainly easier than a phone line based modem. Don't expect lightening speed but you won't be disappointed either. Purchased mainly for my wife to use her no 3g iPad but it works just as well with laptop and desktop. Range is good and connections are stable. We travel around quite a lot and we haven't found a 'dead zone' yet. Charge time is fast from either USB or mains adapter (included), battery life varies according to use but around 3 hours easily. This isn't really a replacement for a home network but for mobile broadband it's excellent. 18 April 2013
Brilliant ! Had a 3 dongle before this , so was limited to just one device but can now connect and use 5 at once , get one today , you won't regret it and best of all I now never have to pay BT any line rental :) 26 February 2013

Prepaid 3 simcard

1 month ago
Hi there, can I put in my 3 prepaid mobile sim card into the dongle and be able to use the wifi I purchase through prepaid? I was told that the internet with my prepaid card would only be able to work through my phone and cannot connect to other devices (ie. laptop). Would the prepaid sim be able connect to other devices through the 3 E5331 WiFi USB Dongle? Thanks

Answer:
Hi, thank you for your question.

I have looked into this for you and can confirm the 3 E5331 WiFi USB Dongle comes with 1Gb loaded on to the device and can connect up to 5 Wi-Fi gadgets at the same time. If you connect a 3 prepaid mobile SIM card , you will only be able to connect your phone to the WiFi. Further information regarding this item can be found on the 3 website.

Thank you for using Question and Answer.

The 3 E5331 WiFi USB Dongle is specifically assigned to the 3 network. For this reason, this dongle will not work abroad.
