I'd not cared much whether I had wifi connection with the car at home until I read here that onboard map updates might be coming only to those who have it. My car has always sensed my network but the signal was never strong enough to link up. So I put a booster in the garage. I know it works because my iPad won't connect in the garage when the booster is off, but gets all the bars and connects happily when it's on. Not so the car. Stays at a simple dot in the connectivity icon and won't join.
I have an Airport Extreme, latest version, and the booster is an airport express that I've had a couple of years or more. I called Tesla service and he really had nothing much to offer. Said the "frequency" of the newest Airport is grokked by the car (don't know the right terminology, being a borderline idiot regarding electronica.) 8 something something 11. It's also the case that the car picks up wifi if I'm close outside, say, of a Starbucks.
Any ideas? Would a newer airport "booster" express make a difference? It's definitely reading the main router, but it seems it makes no difference to the car.
