I've now switched over to a Huawei e585 "Mifi";  this is a 3G device
with a built-in battery and wireless access point.  One button to
switch it on and the laptop will connect over the wireless, just like
with any other wireless network.  You can config it by going to
192.168... in a browser too.

Generally more reliable and less hassle than the various USB-attached
dongles I've used previously;  I got it the day an updated caused a
temporary regression with the USB-dongle I had been using.
