You're doing nothing wrong, they want cell connection to do that.
That's two-prong assault:
- Google has an obligation for cell providers to route their traffic through cell network - it's my speculation;
- Google wants to know your location, we know that, and cell gives them better results than GPS.

Google needs that only once to make sure your account has been provisioned by cell carrier.
That's why if you have Android phone already you can use Titanium backup method described somewhere else in this forum to enable your Google account.
