I am using win xp on my laptop. I recently purchased D-Link DWM-156 dongle (google for images). In this I insert indian SIM card and hook this into the USB port of my laptop anb then connect to the net. Now these dongles work best when the signal strength is strong. When I take my laptop to the balcony of my apartment, the signal becomes strong and there is less tendency to get disconnected. But inside the apartment, signal is not so strong and my net connection gets disconnected after every 15 minutes. So I was wondering if I can get some wireless USB port and hook my dongle to
it and keep this in the balcony of my apartment, so that I don't have to worry much.

Look for a "WiFi Range Extender", or "WiFi Repeater" - they are widely available.

You will need to use a router that allows the WAN connection to come from a 3G/4G USB dongle device. Here's an example of what you will need to use
You will be able to plug your USB dongle into the wireless router and it will broadcast the connection.

A range extender will also work but it will need to be like the router in that your USB dongle will need to plug directly into it.

Check at your local computer stores to see if they are offering something like that.

Also since you have the DWM156, you may also want to look at the DWR730
