Now it is working. But not showing the exact location. And Geolocation doesn't work on WiFi network.

Please read :

Geolocation is done via MLS, AGPS, and GPS.

MLS is only as good as the mapping of the area.

AGPS needs to be configured with a server since the only way we currently do it is via AGPS server AFAIK: ( / / ).

GPS takes 15 minutes outdoors to lock on and is based on the chip on the device.

MLS is only as good as our data points on our server.  If you want to improve the reading via wifi, please contribute to MLS :
Adding ni back on the reporter to bring Comment 8 to his attention.
