Have had one for over a year. LOVE it. Use it to setup network at hotel and use rpi3 to play media via KODI. Have only had one hotel where it would not pick up wifi (didn't see network, although my phone did...maybe N only or AC only or something like that). Can confirm had hard drive hooked up to it and it streamed 1080p of SAME file to two different devices at same time. It has been very impressive. 10/10 would buy again. Great for WAF and making sure her phone is network and not 4g at all times when traveling.

This is for people without unlimited data, or places that have no signal. You plug this device into an Ethernet jack, and use it as a WiFi router.

I'm in for one. I like the idea of connecting it to the wifi on an airplane so I can connect multiple devices through it, but only have to pay one connection fee on the plane. Found this in the Amazon comments on how to set that up:
Quote :
I purchased this item for sharing airplane wifi. I work in IT, and wasn't really expecting it to do this with only a single WIFI radio, but it works perfectly. To do what I want, you turn it on, and it creates a WIFI network called something like "TripMate". Connect to it with the default password of 11111111. Now start a web browser and go to 10.10.10.254 and log in with the default of admin and no password. Click on Internet. It will show you a list of other WIFI networks for it to connect to. You can choose, for example, "United WIFI", I'm assuming it would prompt for a password if there was one. Once it's connected, you'll want to close your browser and start fresh -- now you should get to (in my case) United's paywall. Make sure you're still connected to TripMate, not directly to the airline WIFI. Go ahead and sign up. Once you're online, you can connect additional devices to TripMate, for example your phone or tablet, or your travel companion's devices (up to, I believe 10), and you'll all be online.

I have a Tripmate Nano that I use on a plane to watch downloaded shows I put on a USB on my small-capacity iPad. It's a mess of wires as I have a separate battery pack which I plug the Nano in, then plug the USB into the Nano, then I access the Nano wifi via the ipad. This would be good to have to eliminate that extra battery pack.

I don't think so.

You'd need something to be plugged to the TV (e.g. Chromecast) for you to be able to cast anything to the hotel TV. This device doesn't have that capability.

Side note, I use the much older version of the device to watch movies from a USB drive to multiple iPads - great for road trips or intercontinental flights.

I have the hootoo that doesn't have a battery... and it is slow AF.

Get the GLi net AR300M, which supports openvpn out of the box, has openWRT out of the box, with a slick UI on top of it (still can access the openWRT if you want).

I get about 8mbit at most locations with it, which is enough for kids to stream movies while i get work done.

it was a bit less than this, but a simle 2500mah battery lasts pretty much 10 hrs.

Can this be used as an AP or a regular switch for an existing network? I'm only interested in the media share feature of this device, since it seems to be the best reviewed media share I know of that supports exFat hard drives.

Raspberry pi with an external drive (usb hard drive or usb stick will work) - then load your media on the storage device and add as source to Kodi - use yatse on phone (sine we have a network via the HooToo) and control with phone. Works perfectly! I have used Kodi with some streaming addons to stream video where the hotel network had enough bandwidth to handle. Hope this helps!
