Can I use the Glooko® Kiosk tablet with Ethernet instead of Wi-Fi?


We understand that Wi-Fi isn't always reliable. That's why when using Glooko Kiosk on an Android G Pad, you can use a direct ethernet connection in place of Wi-Fi. If you already have an Ethernet Kit, simply follow the directions below or print out the PDF attached.

If you need an Ethernet Kit, let us know by opening a ticket with our Support Team.
