With the a500 is there a way to use an external wifi adapter connected to the usb port?
Welcome to the forum
See the link below regarding communications without WiFi.
Actually I just want more range with wifi and I have a long range wifi adapter.
For an example the a500 won't work in many rv parks because of it's weak radio.
In the back of my head I was thinking that was what you wanted. There isn't anything I'm aware of that will extend the internal antenna's range, however the WiFi routers I mentioned in that thread also act as range extenders and/or repeaters. The problem is that it would need to be closer to the WiFi source than you are, or possibly just higher.
Will not work. There are some lacking support for USB modems and CD/DVD drives.
Just saw a pocket wifi - mifi as they call it - advertised by 3 on the back of the latest ANDROID MAGAZINE. Doesn't use USB though.
