Should work fine, just like connecting up to a port on your main router. Nothing else should be required besides connecting the extender up as instructed. Just be aware, the LTE Extender can't be used if you are using 5G Home Internet service.

If the ethernet port provides access to the broadband internet connection it might/should work.  Have you tried it to see what happens?  What make/model WiFi extender is it?

I didn't try connecting it to my WiFi Extender (a Netgear EAX20 AX1800 Mesh Extender).  After much research on Verizon Extender I ended up making several  port forwarding Router setting changes and finally got the Verizon  LTE Network Extender to finally get fully installed and activated and my cellular signal in and around my home went from 0-1 bar up to 4 bars.  Device seems to work fine where it is situated so I don't think I'll need to try to connect it to my WiFi extender box.  Thanks .

What were the 'port forwarding Router setting changes' that were made helping the extender to work? May be helpful to other users.
