Hi, 

What else can I do aside from connecting a wifi cable to my unit? Our wifi modem is very positional (signal in the farm is very bad). Can it not get internet connection via bluetooth to my phone?  Or can I use any dongle or wifi booster? I need it badly for home schooling. Desperate for suggestions to anyone who has the same unit like mine. Please help. Thanks

@Nelvi -- ask your Internet Service Provider if they recommend any "range extender" device.

The device requires electrical power, and should be placed half-way between your WiFi-enabled computer and your WiFi-enabled modem.

 

Or, buy such a device from any computer store. DLINK and CISCO/LINKSYS are the better brand-names.
