    Try plugging it into Ethernet, see if that helps. Or take it to an Apple Store.

    Thanks! But we dont have Apple center here. Im using pocket myfi and it seems ineffective because supposedly it blinks when a device uses it. Need to look for someone who has ethernet.

    Try opening up the wifi (no password) on the myfi temporarily and see if that works. Internet recovery has trouble sometimes with certain types of wifi password schemes.
