I wanna get a PS4 for afterwork relaxing (gaming) but I dont know if I can connect it to internet with an USB stick because I cant keep it in a single place, I travel alot and I wanna get it all around with me.. so Im asking you, folks, can I connect PS4 to internet with wireless USB stick and still play online games??? I searched for wireless sticks and I got my eyes on 2: 14Mbps and 16Mbps and with 512kbps connection (NFS Rivals) requirements I think that it will be okay.
So.. the main question is:PS4 its already with internet connection or I have to get an internet connection (in this case, a wireless USB stick) to play online games?
Oppinions and suggestions?????

If you mean the USB dongles that are used to connect to cellular broadband internet that is highly unlikely. These devices need very special drivers that you cannot load into a ps4. Since the ps4 has a normal WiFi wireless connection you could use a cellphone as a hotspot or a dedicated hotspot broadband modem and use it as a router for your PS4.

Still even if you get it to work you most likely would not like the performance. If you were in a very strong coverage area for some of the newest LTE broadband it might work to a point but even those have random lag spikes. Most the other broadband connections are almost unusable for games.

So.. then if I cant use the USB, can I make a hotspot with my phone ( @ 2.84Mbps internet speed ) and connect the Play Station (4) throw it to play online???
