Bad wi-fi signal at workplace, need a boost.

I have just upgraded my Lenovo G505 lap top to Windows 10. I use it at work place (Automobile shop). I am on Wi-Fi now and would like to get some sort of usb to wall’s pc port so I don’t have to keep working with the lousy low Wi-Fi which is near the two customer waiting areas, really for them. I t is a dealership with at least 14 ports at wall for computer. I would like to plug into one of those to get on-line as we use a special program for our work between areas of jobs.

Hello John,

Thank you for your message.

if I am understanding your message correctly, you would like to establish a wired network connection to your laptop.

Typically wall connections for network access are 8P8C connectors with T568B wiring. From what I can see, the Lenovo G505 has an Ethernet port using an 8P8C connector on the left side of the laptop (Lenovo refers to it as the RJ-45 port). Using the built-in network interface would be the most ideal way to go.

I would like to gather more detailed information about the built-in hardware on the laptop.

Could you run our diagnostic program? It will gather detailed device information about the laptop’s hardware.
