Default what dongles are the best?

ok since paypal have decided to shut my account down after 2 weeks (ebay is fine but no use without paypal) i was thinking of buying a dongle and using it on a different laptop ... would this work ok? as i have a stealth account that i have had for 2 years that my husband uses and i dont want to involve this account...if so can anyone recommend the best dongles to use? or are they all about the same?

thanks

thanks i was looking at the ones from 3 ... can you just buy these from the 3 stores? and will it have no connections with my router in the house? as i am going to open legit ebay/paypal accounts using my daughter in laws details but she is at work all day and wouldnt be able to reply to messages or post items, hence the reason i will do it all from my house, as long as there would be no connections with router etc as my hubby has a stealth account that i have had for 2 years and he uses that one....any advice would be grateful

The account you are using the dongle on will have no affiliation with your home router. You should be able to buy one at any 3 store..

I had no idea they had 3 mobile overseas. I thought it was an Aussie-only company

It just gets rid of your cookies, cache, history, flash cookies (LSOs), etc....

It doesn't actually affect your personal files

I bought a dongle off ebay for under a tenner, however I mostly use my mobile phone to access mobile broadband by tethering it with my laptop, if you have a smartphone that has a built in modem then you can do this and you wont need to get a dongle. I would strongly recommend GiffGaff as their prices are the best value.

Any USB modem in any country is good so long as you get good internet speed, they all act as dial up modems and change the ip each time you use it.

Here is some of the best advice you will hear about using a usb dongle with a stealth account.

1. Always start up and close down the usb dongle from the windows account you are using it from.
2. Never switch users while the usb modem is running and look at another stealth account in another windows account, you have just linked the same ip address.
3. Never use a phone tether if you normaly connect yor mobile phone through your router. If you do this power down the router and let the mobile phone use 3G. Tethering with a cell phone that uses the home or office wifi will grab the banned ip address that you are trying not to use.

seanws30 I have verizon usb modem that is 4G and is lightening fast and you can set up a vpn from within it as well, my Virgin one ran like a snail in comparison.

You use an app like pdanet on the phone to either create a wifi hotspot or cable tethered.

Three is by far the best network to go with for Mobile Broadband, They are the only network provider who provides truely unlimited data with their packages (fair usage policy does apply however limit is significantly higher than any other uk provider)

I use T-Mobile dongle and run 16 PayPal accounts from it. Every time you log between user accounts you get a different IP.

I have been caught out twice whereby the IP range has doubled up on a banned account and linked me :(

Not bad in two years though

I would guess that it was more than just IP similarities that got you banned. There are hundreds if not thousands of users regularly over any given IP range and you can bet a high percentage of them are on e/b at some point. E/b would be banning left right and centre if IP were the main factor for linking. IMHO it's a link for sure but a fairly minor one, there has to be more concrete evidence than just that.

My sister is a techy and she created a program for me that logged my IP on a spreadsheet. I had about ten/twelve eBay/PayPal's at the time and I was logging in an out of user accounts hundreds of times a day. Two accounts got slammed at the same time. No buyer disputes. Nothing out of the ordinary accept one of the PayPal's wanted documents as I was approaching 1k limit.

My sis handed the spreadsheet with a bright yellow highlighter pen slashing through two IP addresses. The exact same IP had been generated and the times etc all matched up to when they both got slammed.

The chances are remote -- but I felt that was evidence enough...
