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?

    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.
