Unfortunately, you won't get any more data than standing in front of the unit.
I tried that and got my neighbor's WiFi porno collection ....
Seriously, your Blink unit will have it's own local Internet address as part of your home network. For example, you may have a router attached to the Cable Modem. (Cable Modem is what converts the data from the actual cable TV cable so you can use it). Then to the cable unit you may have a router or a switch connected. The router is what is usually found. It will distribute the signal from the Cable (your Internet connection) to the various Internet connected devices in your local area. Por exhemplo:
----->Cable-----> Adaptor --------> Router (192.168.0.1) ---------> (see below)
192.168.0.100 ---------> Your computer or workstation
192.168.0.101 ---------> Printer
192.168.0.102 ---------> Wii box (if you have one)
192.168.0.103 ---------> Internet capable HDTV Set
192.168.0.104 ---------> Blink Unit
and so on ... and so on ... etc...
Remember, that YMMV and that your PC may not be 192.168.0.100, as in the example. Also your Router may not have 192.168.0.1 assigned as it's personal address. You have to RTFM to get that address or use a port scanner application.
The Blink unit (as has been explained in several other areas herein) is a Kluge of various components and looks to your Router just like another computer. Matter of fact, it IS a computer with the entire operating system (Linux) and so forth on a single small-format PC board and then crapified with other stuff by the Blink people who finally got it to work. Let's be charitable and say that the Blink device is a "Work in Progress".
Once the non-disclosure, anti-tampering and other restrictions are off the Blink unit (which you signed up to in exchange for a free unit) you may be certain that we will swiftly conduct a Hacker's defenestration upon the Blink unit and redesign it.
