What method are you trying to use right now? Google Play?
Wifi should not be a factor.
I'm not sure there is an easy way to extract apk from the Google Play 
webpages, it mostly should be about finding the url to grab the file.

I can give you an apk to try side loading (need allow 3rd party app 
installation enabled).
