    just simply purchase a Cheap VFM Wireless Router - such as TP LInk 740N (online --- 1050/-) and u just need to connect cables --- and it will start working out of the box --- and if u come across any HASSLE - community is here to sort it out.

    Believe me --- GO for Wireless Router rather than Wireless Adapter - for the purpose of Sharing INTERNET

    You can not use Wireless and Ethernet simultaneously, its not allowed on BSNL home planes. Which modem you are using, I could have told you details if I knew the modem company name.
    Open firefox or other browser, go to 192.168.1.1 it will ask a ID and Password. Give the ID & pass.

    Spoiler:
    id: admin and pass: admin
    and then you will see the modem config page. Don't mess with it unless you know everything, just find the wireless option and check on it. thats it.

    Type2 I guess, do as I've said. Find the wireless option by going to 192.168.1.1 and CHECK ON it.

    not possible.any complex usb device need driver install to function & for this it needs either a full fledged OS like windows/linux or it needs a custom OS(like those 3g wifi routers which supports various 3g usb modems).that usb port is v1.1 supporting basic usb devices or pen drives only.

    ^^But whitestar,the device may reach me tomorrow or the next day(already shipped by ebay through DTDC).The manufacturers(Leoxsys) are also packaging an auto installation CD for drivers.

    According to them:--->
    Complies with wireless 802.11b/g/n standards with data rate up to 150Mbps
    Standard: 802.11b/g/n, 802.3, 802.3u
    USB 2.0 interface
    Supports 20 MHz/40 MHz frequency width
    Auto-detects and changes network transmission rate
    Provides two work modes: Infrastructure and Ad-Hoc
    Supports software AP and building your wireless LAN.
    Green Power Saving : supports smart transmit power control and auto-idle state adjustment
    Security: 64/128-bit WEP, WPA/WPA2 encryption methods, 802.1x authentication standards
    System requirements: Windows 7/Vista/XP/2000, Mac OS X, Linux
    Adapter size: 23 x 14 x 5 cm
    Net weight: 30 g
    So a bit hopeful my Friend.

    Simply put, D-Link DSL-2520U + Mini Wireless Wi-Fi Nano USB Adapter Dongle WiFi Dongle(LEO-NANO150N), can this be a POSSIBLE or VIABLE connection & configuration for wi-fi HOTSPOT access point?

    i think you misunderstood.driver install will take place in the device to which it is connected which in your case is D-Link.unless D-Link DSL-2520U comes with inbuilt drivers for LEO-NANO150N which is most certainly not the case it will not work.usb ports in modem/router usually support only pen drives & 3g usb modems(that too from a specified list & not just any 3g usb modem again because of fixed inbuilt drivers in modem/router) & nothing else.if only creating hotspot is your aim then you can simply connect wifi adapter to PC & use connectify free version for basic hotspot features.procedure is very straight forward & for help you can see instructions on connectify web site/help/faq.

    ^^Sorry friend, I got you. Actually I misunderstood your explanation.Now it's clear.
    Well,keeping the BSNL Broadband connection (900 ULD) through DSL-2520U(D-Link) modem completely HASSLE FREE for my Desktop-PC, what connection will the LEO-NANO150N use as hotspot?
    The hotspot is mainly for my Tablet surfing from another room in my house through wi-fi connection.
    Where from to download connectify software?

    you can connect LEO to desktop & install connectify lite/free from Lite vs PRO - Connectify
    it should automatically detect the broadband connection & then you can share it.for some detailed instructions you can see this:

    ^^Friend @whitestar_999,followed the links,downloaded the software;Connectify "lite" version.

    I had also received the LEO-NANO150N USB Wi-Fi adapter today,which I had already connected to a USB port on my PC.I also installed the latest Drivers based on Windows from the "Leoxsys" website.Everything O.K.
    Now,when I installed the "Connectify-lite" software tool ,it is recognising the connection as "ethernet" but is failing to share the network over wi-fi.The info. box (configuration tool box) says that this is applicable (means sharing of ethernet network connection)only on "Pro" versions.

    That means all my attempts are futile?

    Are there any other alternative "Free methods"?
    Please help Friend.

    their comparison page only states that 3g/4g connection sharing is limited in lite version but no mention of ethernet.anyway try this:

    ^^whitestar,I had previously installed Virtual Router(0.9 beta version)tools in Windows 7,which I am into now.

    The Network name(SSID):BSNL-Connect(As per my choice)
    Password: ***********(I gave a combination of alphanumeric characters)

    Shared Connection: Local Area Connection(AS SHOWN IN THE DIALOG BOX)

    Now when I click the button "Start Virtual Router", a message dialog box appears and says: "Virtual Router could not be started"

    Hence no connection.

    whitestar,as per your instructions,I ran and checked WLAN autoconfig.Everything is O.K. and it is already set to started and automatic.

    The Local Area Connection in the network area(Control Panel -> Network and Internet ->Network Connections) shows Broadband (ethernet) as active but the Wireless Network Connection 2(WLAN)connection as disabled and passive.The drivers are shown to be installed without error(within the properties dialog).

    Still running network diagnostics(As administrator) the message is: Problems Found

    "There might be a problem with the driver for the Wireless Network Connection 2 adapter" Detected (yellow exclamation mark)

    Surprisingly within "Device Manager" it is showing that the 802.11n USB wireless Lan card(LEO-NANO150N) ---> The device is working properly(Inside properties dialog).

    There are no yellow exclamation signs within Device Manager.

    Ultimately ???????????????????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!???????????????????
