most dongles will work fine, as long as they are unlocked or on o2.
you must make sure you DONT buy an unlimited goodybag though, as only the limited data goodybags or gigabags are allowed to be conected to a laptop.
see tethering policy:

p.s. I use a zte mf112 and it seems fine to me, and they are cheep

Huawei dongles are quite popular, just make sure it's unlocked or locked to O2. Smiley Happy

Huawei MIFI are just a bit better than a dongle ( long as your laptop has wifi ), try looking at one of those

Huawei dongles seem to be the easiest to unlock if you need to, but you can find unlocked dongles with the mobile partner software installed fairly cheaply on ebay. Just make sure it's capable of at least 7.2mbps.
