ya you can use evdo but also any USB dongle as a wifi .

----------

use this software called Connectify (Your Hotspot, Your Way - Connectify) which works perfectly fine. You have to configure it once and then it's as simple as just plugging in the Wi-fi dongle and clicking the Start Hotspot button. I'm not sure if it will work across rooms, but it works fine within a large room.

That's not what he's asking for - I think you have not read the original post correctly, as he also mentions that "connectify is not an option for me".

Problem: He has BSNL EVDO, but the signal is weak and only available in one room of his house (his living room).
What he wants: He wants to be able to use the Internet in other rooms (not the living room), so to have the EVDO device in his living room, then use a WiFi router to connect from another room.
Solution: WiFi router which connects to EVDO.

Get Asus RT-N13U from Flipkart ....you can use your EVDO Dongle as a input and this router will give good signal across your entire home.
Flipkart: Asus RT-N13U Wireless N with All-in-One Printer Server Router: Router

I copy and paste a comment from a user which is relevant to the OP's question.

"The best Wifi router, amazing features in the price range.
I purchased this wi-fi router for sharing my 3G internet primarily but hold that is just the tip of the ice, it has plethora of other featured thrown in like independent file server, file share, printer server, web server, and independent p2p file down-loader which allows one to select the seed and let the router download the file and store it on the USB HDD attached to it.

I have tested it with Photon +, Reliance and MTS data cards and it connects with no problem (select CDMA 2000 for device type as HSDPA doesn't work for MTS and Photon +).

A winner all the way, it retains the wi-fi network through out and stood random interference test with flying colors.

Highly recommended."

The problem is you do not have good signal in the house except in living hall where you can bot operate your laptopWhat you have 1 Laptop with wifi support 2 You have a BSNL data dongle If the above assumptions are OK then the solution is below1) You can boost the signal with a signal booster but this solution is a limited function and not elegantThe better solution is go for a 3G wi fi router which will connect your dongle to internet via usb portand become a wifi hotspot to connect your laptop any where in the house If you need more details you can post again I have been using A LINK wifi router with bsnl dongle for more than six monthsI have a bonus of connecting my android phone also with the same router and without subscribing for 3G data plan
