I've owned this guy for quite a while now. Love it, but have minimal use for it as I don't really travel.
For this price, if you use it once it is probably worth it. I've used it for a couple different uses now.

I plugged this into hotel ethernet - and then cloned the MAC address on my Android phone, logged into the hotel internet from the phone, replaced my MAC address. This was done with an app from the Google Playstore, can't remember which app.
This enabled me to connect all my devices in the hotel to WiFi from this device, including a chromecast. I could then stream whatever I wanted to the TV.

More recently, drove from Michigan to Florida - kids needed entertainment (aged 2 & 4). Mounted 10 in tablet between front seats. Connected to this guy via Wifi, had HDD plugged in with 100 Gigs of movies/TV. The kids were better in the car than they were at home. Drove straight through both ways ~17+ hrs.
When I got to Florida, I then streamed the same media to a Kindle Fire TV stick using XBMC app.

Hope this info helps someone.

That's cool. I had an ASUS one that was similar. The ASUS was probably not the best thing I've owned of theirs. Like this is could switch modes to anything from network adapter to router and everything in between. This Hootoo is interesting in that you can hook up a USB drive to it. Maybe not terribly practical, but could actually be used to play video or music on a phone or tablet, or transfer files. Could come in handy on the go.

I bought this few months ago but not used once...now a days, wifi is available in hotel anyway so plugging this device in wired to get wifi is useless for my point of view.

I'm interested in cloning the MAC address part, since I'd like to use it in the air with GOGO service, anyone has idea for iOS devices?

True, but there are a quite a few hotels that nickel and dime you and charge per device or limit 1 per. This could help out with that.

This device gets around a couple things:

* device limits (many hotels are going to 3 devices max - we know geeks have more)
* hassle of logging in on every single device - you login on this once and forget about it as your other devices automagically hook up to this SSID

I don't use mine much, but when I need it, it's fantastic and easy.

I did have to roll the firmware back on mine to get hotel login pages to show up properly. Once that was done, though, it was smooth sailing. Incredibly easy to use and powerful.

The USB storage port makes it even better if you want to use a Chromecast or Roku in a hotel room.

I bought one a while back to use as a makeshift NAS solution while on road trips for my 5&6 year old kids.(iPads can't hold all of Disney and dreamworlds libraries). The main problem is that the hootoo app has a really clunky interface, so the kids were constantly asking for help.

A much better solution was dumping my movie rips onto an old laptop with iTunes, turn on wifi sharing, connect the iPads to the laptop's network, then turn on home sharing. That way all the movies on the laptop show up on the iPads in the video app like normal... You don't even realize your accessing a remote copy.

Bottom line, nice router but beware of the app if your going to use it as a portable NAS

I chose not to use the app for this reason. I ended up using ES File Explorer and just connected it as a networked drive, manually selected files to play. There are also several DLNA choices, but I did not explore this route. The router itself has a DLNA server feature. I would/will explorer this more in the future, to perhaps prevent my kids from accidentally deleting files or other mishaps.
