How to use Glooko® Kiosk with Ethernet instead of Wi-Fi

We understand that Wi-Fi isn't always reliable. That's why you have the option to use a direct Ethernet connection instead of Wi-Fi when using Glooko Kiosk on an LG tablet.

Before getting started, you will need an Ethernet Kit, which contains the following:

  • Micro-USB to Ethernet Hub with power cord
  • USB male-to-Micro-USB female

NOTE: If you already have an Ethernet Kit, simply follow the directions below. Otherwise, contact our Support Team to request an Ethernet Kit.

    • A computer or power outlet with USB charging port

  2. Power up and connect the Ethernet Hub.

    • Connect the power cord to the Ethernet hub charging port.

    • Plug the Ethernet cable (not included) into the Ethernet port on the hub and into an Internet source (wall jack, router, etc.).

  3. Connect Glooko Kiosk to Ethernet.

    • Disable Wi-Fi on the LG tablet.
