Hi

I want to interface 3g dongle with Arduino Uno board. with this I am hoping to make my board internet enabled.

I am aware that there are GSM shields /modules available to do it. But I am more interested in 3g dongle solution as it is lot cheaper and more compact(plug and play )

Do let me know if it is possible at all in the first place and how.

thanks

The dongle is a slave. The Arduino is a slave. Without a master (USB Host) around, the slaves sit around and drink beer all day.

If you know how to write a USB driver, by all means buy a USB Host shield and have at it. I suspect, though, that if you knew how to write a driver that you'd also know that one was needed, so I'm guessing that you don't. Pay for someone else's knowledge and hard work. Buy a ready-to-use shield.
