Honestly, your best bet would probably be purchasing a Wifi (or USB+Wifi) device upfront, rather than trying to share the connection via your laptop amongst multiple devices.

Have prepaid dongle and Telstra has changed the security setting on my dashboard so I can see my usage.  How do I get new security token.

Hi rictic - you should also be able to view your usage details via the My Account portal at https://www.my.telstra.com.au/myaccount/home, but our Prepaid teams on 13 22 00 or via online chat at  http://tel.st/nxzt can also investigate and advise further
