There's no way to use WiFi all by itself - the base has to be connected via Ethernet. Use a WiFi extender to connect to your WiFi and then use the Ethernet port on the extender to connect the base. This has worked great for many folks.

The base station needs an ethernet cable connection. If you need to position the base station somewhere far away from your router, consider a wifi range extender with an ethernet port. Something like this would work well

Thanks for your information.

As we haven't the ethernet cable in that mall Wifi only here, any way to settle it just under Wifi Channel?
