Setting up Super Wi-Fi booster over ethernet connection to router

I have a cabin 100 foot down my garden. I have a Cat7 ethernet cable linking my router to the cabin. I am trying to set up a Super Wi-Fi booster (Alexa version) to provide Wi-Fi in the cabin. I have spoken to the experts at Vodafone but they said that while the booster fully supports ethernet backhaul, they do not provide any technical support for this. They will only provide support for using it as a Wi-Fi mesh. 


The ethernet cable works fine, I have tested this by plugging it into a laptop.


I have set the booster up and can see it on the Vodafone Broadband app in the Super Wi-fi map. I set it up first over the Wi-Fi in the house, then moved it to the cabin. I can see it as connected over ethernet in the map. However, I do not get any Wi-Fi signal in the cabin. 


When I first plug the booster in in the cabin, I do see my network appear and can connect to it. However, this drops off after about 30 seconds and the network does not appear again. This happens on both my laptop and my mobile.


Also I have two boosters and have tried both of them, with the same results.


Are there any router settings, or other set-up tweaks that are needed for ethernet backhaul to the boosters?

Thanks Parrog - I have similar issues to yourself. However, I cannot get my Booster to work at all ; either wired to my Ultrahub or connected wirelessly by WSP button. I do however have a solid ethernet connection (via the Ultrahub and an Ethernet switch) to hook up for example, my Mac or Hive
