I think you mean connecting to a remote node. Syncing monero sometimes can be slow for some users so just keep it running and it should synchronize and may take days.

Edit: To give you an idea, today, I just tried to synchronized starting at 98% and took me 3 hours. I'm using an SSD which is faster.

However, you can connect to a remote node if you are really having problems. To connect to a remote node follow this guide How can I use Monero without syncing the blockchain?.
