Do you have a USB modem or a hotspot?  USB hotspot is confusing semantics

You cannot use a USB modem with an iPad.

You can can use a hotspot with an iPad by setting up the right wifi settings.

Can I use a cable to link the Hotspot to the iPad 3 mini?

No that will not work. You need to connect through wifi.

You are still mixing terms making it confusing

it is either a USB modem that connects directly to a device or through a cable

OR

it is a Hotspot and you connect devices through wifi

It sounds like you have the former (USB modem) but you need the latter (hotspot).

(Yes I realize there are some hotspots that allow cable connection, but for the purposes of this discussion keep the terms to above).
