The Venus GX have onboard WiFi to connect to a mobile Wifi hotspot or a WiFi router, so there's no need to connect an USB Wifi adapter if that's what you meant.

To configure the Venus GX and connect it to a WiFi network:
1. Connect your mobile phone to the WiFi that Venus GX is presenting. You'll find the network name (SSID) and password (encryption key) on a sticker on the side of the Venus GX.
2. Open a Web Browser on your mobile phone and go to 172.24.24.1 where you can configure the Venus GX to connect to the local WiFi router or hotspot.

Thanks for your help guys. It was networking. All sorted now.

Sounds like you've connected an USB LTE modem for direct internet access without a router. There's no support for USB LTE modems on the Venus GX.

I don't think your problem is related to the Venus GX specifically. It seems to me that you have some sort of general networking issue. It be very difficult to offer any useful advice without any knowledge of how your network is set up.
