How do you have the unit configured? As a receiver of WIFI from your home ?
Did you try to configure it while inside your house? Just a laptop connected to it?

You may be limited to just the remote WIFI. You should be able to use the ethernet cable to drive another WIFI access point or router. That is the way that unit was designed to be used.
