Does anyone know if you can connect the the Network Extender to the modem via a USB wifi adapter or does it have to be hardwired?

Verizon Network Extenders are not compatible with USB WiFi adapters or cellular modems.  You must connect them to your home router or modem via a normal Ethernet cable.

See the Network Extender FAQ for more info:

#1 under Network Extender Setup should have more info.
