I’ve recently bought a Vodaphone Mobile WiFi dongle thing. This is unlocked as when I put my O2 pay as go sim in the dongle, my iPad and phone find and connect to it ok.
My problem is when I try to connect my fire stick it brings up another screen on the tv, this says WiFi is connected and good signal, but the internet is not connected, and needs things to conn3ct ???
please help as want to use this whilst caravaning with my autistic son.
ps. I’m not tech savi, please go carefull with me.

@madasaf1sh You are right about streaming using a lot of data in HD, but I stream from Amazon Prime and Neflix and the difference between SD and HD in data usage is huge but the quality difference is negligible in my opinion (Sony 32" TV - 1080P - Connected to a PC HDMI) It's quite remarkable how good the picture is in SD. Don't know if it's the same with a Fire-stick?

There is a lot of gumpf when it comes to resolution and quality, very low quality is obviously inferior to HD but a lot of so called HD is not really that HD, the resolution might be there but the quality within the resolution is not really HD. You can see this effect just watching freeview - All SD channels are the same resolution but some are much better quality compared to others, for eg compare BBC/ITV1 to some minor channels and the quality difference is like night and day. If I watch an SD film on my TV the resolution is reported as 1080P (My desktop settings) But the film is streamed in SD and is not 1080P, but the TV does a good job to upscale the picture that makes it look slightly better than SD ( SD on Neflix and Amazon Prime is already good anyway) I've only really noticed a difference between good-SD and real HD when the film scene is very busy or in very dark scenes (Slightly inferior contrast)
