    I have an LG tablet running an Android O/S 5.01.

    I want to add an external (USB w/Micro USB) WiFi antenna adapter.

    I want to be able to receive a WiFi signal that is just out of range right now.

    Also, this is a Public WiFi that I will not be able to access the Admin function to register a SSID.

    Is any of this possible on an Android device ??

    TIA

    That sounds a bit shifty....
    You want to hook into someone's WiFi and use their data, presumably without their knowledge and approval?

    Yes, a PUBLIC WiFi hotspot. LogIn as GUEST. What's wrong with that ?

    I work in a large hospital that has Public WiFi.

    The signal does NOT reach back to our breakroom.

    As I said above, the Public WiFi signal is just out of range for our devices to pick up. Maybe 75-100 feet away we get a signal.

    We want to find a way to extend our devices receiving capabilities via an antenna or extender of some sort.

    I'm simply asking if this is even possible. If so, HOW do we do this ?


    Thank you.

    My apologies, we often get ppl here wanting to hack into neighbours WiFi without permission, so I've grown a bit cynical..
    You used to be able to get amplifiers for mobile signals, so perhaps you can fit WiFi also... Hopefully some clever person will pop in with helpful info... Apologies one again..

    No problem. I understand.

    We have no Admin Access to this Public router.

    Is there a way to ADD and External antenna/adapter to Android devices via the Micro-USB port ??
