My friend has bought new "Dell Venue 8 3830" tablet with Android JellyBean 4.3.

Now we want to connect a 3g dongle (D-Link) via a micro-usb cable which came with it.

When i connect the dongle to the device the dongle shows solid green light (which probably means connected), but when i go up in settings of the tablet i dont see an option to turn on and use the device.

All the blog i read tells to enable the "Mobile Network" option in settings; But on this device theres no such option.

Wireless Settings
      - Wifi
      - B/T
      - Hotspot
      - Data Usage
      - More...
             - Airplane Mode
             - VPN
             - Tethering
  • (1) Can you post a link to the blog? (2) I'm assuming you want to use the 3G dongle so that the tablet gets 3G access (as a consumer of data). Is that right? – geffchang Mar 13 '14 at 10:49

  • NO it does not have a sim card slot. – Shashank Degloorkar Mar 13 '14 at 13:01
  • If there is no SIM card slot, then how do you expect to have an option Mobile networks. It is meant for networking via sim card. – Abhishek K Aug 25 '16 at 5:11

  • The OP states that the "Mobile Network" option is not there. – bmdixon Apr 25 '14 at 10:16
