I had bought a USB 3G (Huawei) unlocked dongle a few months back, as there was no leased line connectivity in my locality. But now, I have changed to one. Since I don't have a laptop, just a PC, it's lying idle now. So is there any way I can use the same dongle to make a wifi hotspot so that I can share my lease line connection with my Android?

Well, this doesn't work for me. I want to convert my 3G usb dongle to a wifi dongle (maybe a change of firmware).

Maybe buying a 3g router would suit you better.
