      Answer

      The slow wifi issue isn't your modem or router, there's something about how they designed wifi into this thing that is causing it. If you want to stick with this device, and not look at over competitor products, if you attach a different USB wifi adapter, I can confirm that it works just fine. Make sure you disable the internal wifi adapter once you get the new one plugged in so you know which one your connection is going out on and not wasting cycles on the internal one.

        Answer

        Yes, you can install any software compatible with Windows 10-32 bit OS, also you have access to all the apps on the Microsoft store, this is a full blown OS. Delete the old files and system files after the updates, I had 20G free after running all the updates, running the cleanup deleted another 6G worth of old installation flles, disable hibernation saves you another 1.4G and that leaves you with 20G free for software installs.

            Answer

            As long as the monitor supports HDMI. If not, you'll need an adapter. You'll also then need a keyboard and mouse. The ones that use one USB dongle to attach both keyboard and mouse work the best as they come pre-paired with the dongle. Otherwise, it also works fine if you use a USB keyboard long enough to pair a bluetooth keyboard and mouse. If you use USB only connections, you'll likely need a hub as there's only one USB port.

                if Minecraft can Run on Windows10 then YES you can. this comes with Windows10 pre-installed. so its a PC just in a tiny formfactor. think of this PC stick as a smartphone with NO screen. also it means you can download Apps, music, movies from Microsoft store.

                        No. 2.4 Ghz only, however, you can attach a separate USB Wifi adapter to it, which I had to do anyway just to resolve packet loss and jitter issues with the built-in wifi. Doing this also drastically improved overall performance, likely due to apps having to deal with delayed packets.
