I am having the same problem, We live in a large brick hous so the Extender cannot get a wireless signal and I have tried to "Wire it" from my router.

Once I wired it and then connected a laptop to it I got a strength 5 signal and was able to browse my network. So it seems to work well as a "Network wired hub" However I cannot connect to the internet at all.

So I have the same desperate question; Are we using the extenders for something they were not intended for and can you only use them to extend a "Wireless signal?"
