As soon as you have a working internet connection, you should upgrade to a Fedora release that is still supported with (important security) updates. Fedora 20 has reached End-Of-Life status in June 2015. As of today, Fedora 22 and Fedora 23 are supported releases. If you upgrade your system, I do not recommend upgrading from F20 to F22 in one step, rather do 20 --> 21 --> 22, which is already more work and network load than downloading a recent F22 or F23 image and installing that.
