Well I've had the MTH WIFI unit 2 years now. Tonight, I finally tried to use it. It will NOT connect to the Internet via my cell phone in my basement.
I am able to go all the way to my 2nd floor, using my PC; and the PC did locate the MTH unit and connected!
My router / modem is upstairs--two floors away from the WIU.
I'm wondering if others have had this issue.
I'm guessing nothing is wrong with the WIU simply it can't receive the signal in my basement?
Tomorrow, I will test my theory by bringing the WIU and portable layout upstairs.
