You need to root your device.
Install PPP Widget.
Download the driver for the modem.
Configure SuperUser so that it will read the driver.

Frankly, it's a lot of bother. The instruction isn't simple. If I were you, get an Android smartphone to wifi tether than that dongle or a wireless modem. A smartphone is more practical and gives you the option to sms at least.

Buy mifi and throw that dongle away is only sensible choice.

Note 8 is easier to hold on mobile

Note 8 has better pixel density

At the expense of ~3k less battery and 2 inch of extra space.

Good deal is Note 8. IMO

> In reply to Akhter @ 2013-06-30 18:43 from PxkK - click to readOver 2 months later, I find the Note 8's key features, S Pen and bigger screen complement, my Note II. The Note II is my primary unit with unlimited data to tether the 8 when I need to work on some drawing, watch or Internet browse.

When commuting, the Note II is pretty handy, while the 8 is something when you're in the office or somewhere you're idle.

I have recently discovered some remote control apps that are fairly working while pairing both for presentations or entertainment, one connected to a projector or TV with the HDMI connector.

You need to root though. One is DroidMote (paid), that basically enables one device as a trackpad or mouse pointer for the other via bluetooth or wifi connection. Another one is RemoDroid (free, beta) that incredibly mirrors whatever is on screen, except there is a noticeable slight lag. The official AllShareCast dongle still is the best, but I'm using what I have at the moment since I spent on an HDMI to VGA adaptor.

I'm using this note 8.0(N5100) last one month.

Everything is amazing, but I feel missing-

1. No led indicator for charging /missed call /sms /mms /Email.

2. No camera flash.

3. All downloaded apps stored in internal memory as un moveable.

4. Low volume in multimedia mood.

5. No NFC

6. No FM Radio.

7. No scratch proof glass.

Out of those things its outstanding in performance.
