I have the premium connectivity for my 2021 Model Y and have a software update pending. It continues to tell me to connect to WiFi but my WiFi is too far to get a good signal outside my home. I installed a WiFi Extender and it's still too weak, plus it doesn't save the password (which is very cryptic) and a pain to continue to reenter everytime I try to connect. Why won't it just download using my premium connectivity?

because the updates are too big, typically 1-2GB, so it costs too much on the lte. Only critical updates might be pushed through lte... You can make a hotspot out of your cell phone if all else fails.
