How to use 3G broadband USB modem on Google Nexus 7? Yes, current Nexus 7 model does not have 3G data connection compatibility. You are stuck with Wi-Fi connection only. Well, that’s not true after all. You can actually enable 3G data connection on Nexus 7 with the help of root access, OTG cable, 3G broadband USB modem (like Huawei, ZTE) and PPP Widget. Too bad that I can’t try it myself because I only have Huawei Wi-Fi Modem E5832. So far users reported it is working on Huawei GSM / UMTS Stick and O2 Germany ZTE 3565-z UMTS Stick. Do try it out…

I have a problem. After connecting with this widget, browser, Market etc. works fine. But some apps like Skype says “No internet connection” and don’t try to connect. May be because of wifi off. Do you have any clue how to solve this?
