   - The built-in WiFi in the Venus GX has a very low signal strength - unfortunately. It is strong enough to connect to a phone, tablet or laptop in order to access setup and monitoring. But to connect the Venus GX to the internet either use the built-in Ethernet port or add a USB-WiFi dongle. See [[https://​www.victronenergy.com/​live/​ccgx:​start#​internet_connectivity|CCGX Manual, section 1.4.2]] for details. Make sure the Venus GX is running v2.06 or later - early shipments of Venus GX units ran v2.05.   - The built-in WiFi in the Venus GX has a very low signal strength - unfortunately.
