Question about internet, mobile broadband, wifi

Hi,

I am moving out from my house, and I won't have internet for 2 weeks, but I really need it for some work. So I wanted to know what can be done, what is the cheapest way maybe to get internet for this period of time. Do I have to get mobile broadband for 30 days with dongle and pay about 20 quid ? I got laptop and it has dell wireless 1520 wireless-n wlan mini-card driver network adapter, so I wanted to know how can it be used, maybe for wifi connection ? I have never connected to wi-fi from laptop so I don't know how can I do it.

Thanks for anyone who can help

Best thing to do is get a Pay As You Go dongle with a network (e.g. T-Mobile) (Best to get one with good signal near your house)
There around £2 a Day, so £20 for 2 weeks.

Don't sign any contract for short term use. If you can get wifi, use that, it's easy enough (just ask around or google for help). If you're stuck and isolated somewhere, you will likely need a 3G connection via a dongle. You can tether your smartphone to your PC if you have one, and only require light internet usage. If that won't do, you'll need a 3G dongle. The cheapest way to do that currently is usually via a Three network PAYG dongle with a free accompanying SIM, or an additional SIM.
