Usu, the base is plugged into a router or switch, but with no router but only wifi, you will need a wifi extender with an ethernet port...

hook the extender into your wifi and then the base into the extender's port

@PeterTalbot

How are you connecting to the internet? We need to know that before someone can help you.

Thanks Tom Mac and brh. The short answer is no I cannot, without using something like an extender....

I wish Arlo would wake up to the fact that not all of us use a router...

I use a mobile data 4GX modem by ZTE with a sim card in it ....no such thing as a ethernet port in that little one...
