    1.connect your wireless device to the tripmate
    3.tap on User-> here you can change the pw

    - turn on your tripmate, find the tripmate's SSID (TripMateNano-XXXX) in the wifi list of you device, access in with default password “11111111”.
    - open browser, enter
    - go to Settings -> Network Settings -> Wi-Fi &LAN -> enter your new password -> Save.
    - back to you device’s wifi settings, reconnect tripmate’s SSID with new password.

    1. Get the user name and password of the wifi network

    2. Connect your phone to TripMate wirelessly, log in its web end

    3. Network-> Internet -> wireless access -> scan -> select your hotel's wifi name (SSID), leave the password empty-> save.

    4. Open another page on your phone browser, the restrict page pops up, login with the username & password

    (if the restrict page doesn’t pop up, please update your firmware. Please download the custom firmware from our hootoo website:


    After updating the firmware, please login> service-> Auto-jump Service-> Turn off-> save)


    5. Then your other devices could access the network bridged by TripMate.

    (clear your browser cache if it failed to connect at the first time)

    This is because it uses the same radio/frequency (2.4GHz) to accept incoming and outgoing packets from clients as it does to forward those packets on to the next wifi router and accept replies. So effectively you get half the bandwidth, as each packet must go over the air twice - from the client to the tripmate, then from the tripmate to the wifi router. This should be the industry standard with almost all router with bridge mode. For those who constantly use media streaming or real-time network gaming, we instead recommend AP-Bridge mode to expand the wireless network with less impact to peak performance.

    1. Connect to the "TripMateNano-XXXX" network.
    2. Open the "Network" tab, and then on the "Lan" sub-tab.
    3. Tap on "Scan" with the search icon.
    4. You should see "" in the available LAN networks, if not tap "New"
    5. Hold tap on "" and then tap "Edit Serer"
    6. Enter the following details
    Domain: (Leave empty)
    Username: admin (or whatever you chose as the username)
    Password: (blank or whatever you chose as the password)
    Display as: (Or whatever name you want to choose)
    (please delete "IP$" or similar characters)

    - make sure your tripmate turned on, join in tripmate's local wifi network, log in web end.
    - attach a USB storage device with tripmate (tripmate's built in RAM is limited, so it need external storage as extra RAM), 
      important: put the firmware file in your cellphone or laptop which access in, rather than put firmware in USB storage device attached to tripmate.
    - go to settings -> system -> firmware -> upgrade -> select firmware from your cellphone or laptop -> save -> wait for finish and reboot.



    How does this work? Do I have to be in a wifi area or does it give off its own wifi signal? Like if I'm in the park where there's no wifi Customers are chatting about this View conversation
    A: This is not a modem. It basically connects you to a device that can be reached wirelessly. So you can sit in a park and connect to your harddrive wirelessly to access on your phone/mobile device or use to get wireless internet in a room where only an ethernet cable is available for connecting to the internet



    Does this device have a client mode like the TP-Link TL-WR702N - essentially connecting to an ethernet device via rj45 and acts as a wireless adapter? Customers are chatting about this View conversation
    A: You may want to consider a nano router that runs OpenWrt, such as the GL.iNet GL-AR150 (ASIN: B015CYDVG8), GL-MT300N (ASIN: B01AL7P1FU), or GL-AR150-ext (ASIN: B015CYI8DY), which all have USB file sharing. The access modes on my GL-MT300N are: Access Point, Client, Ad-Hoc, 802.11s, Pseudo Ad-Hoc, Monitor, Access Point (WDS), Client (WDS). The OpenWrt wiki has more details. However, OpenWrt can be more complex than other router firmware.



    can the HooToobe used in a vehicle, and receive good transmition Customers are chatting about this View conversation
    A: Yes to creat a WiFi net work in the car but you will need a internet source if you want the web.



    Can you get to it from Windows as a normal file sharing drive, through the wired Ethernet jack, not just through wifi? Customers are chatting about this View conversation
    A: yes just log in like u would to the regular service provider but u have to be pluged in to the dsl jack



    I have wireless acess, but it is very spotty and unreliable due to being shared by multiple users/devices. Will this enhance my connection? Customers are chatting about this View conversation
    A: This device can be used as a repeater and will enhance the signal strength in corners where the signal is patchy. But of your primary modem itself is sending out patchy signal, then this device will not be able to help you much.



    Can the USB port power a portable 2.5 inch drive? Customers are chatting about this View conversation
    A: Just keep in mind that the current (amperage) it can supply will be completely dependent on what you are powering the HooToo which will pass through to power the device connected. So if you power the HooToo with a power source that can only supply, for example, 0.3 amps it probably won't be enough to spin up a portable drive. But if you are using something like an iPad or Samsung S5 charger to power the HooToo which typically are 1.0-2.0amps, then you are probably all set. Older USB chargers/supplies that conform to the old half-amp max current specification might be borderline depending on the external drive used.



    will it make a printer wireless without a wireless network? I just want to print direct wirelessly from my windows XP wireless notebook PC. Customers are chatting about this View conversation
    A: This device is a wireless router so a printer cannot be plugged into it, but if the printer is a wireless type printer then this router would allow printing from anywhere within range of the wireless signal.



    I'm using this device to stream movies. Does not seem to work with any format other than M4V. Does it stream MKV or AVI to iphone? Customers are chatting about this View conversation
    A: The question itself is not correct - this does not have anything to do with converting videos. This device is just a way to hookup your wi-fi devices - and yes it works with an iPhone. As to your question about M4V, you have a few options, and they have nothing to do with this device. A) get software on a desktop PC or Mac, and have it do the video conversion (and then you copy or stream or sync it from the computer to the phone). Free software that can convert for you is "Handbrake" or "VLC". Don't pay for software that does this. B) Get an app on the iPhone which can convert video formats. Apps which claim to support this kind of conversion do exist, but they're expensive and VERY slow (your phone was not meant to do this). An IOS video converter app is really only meant to convert short video files, so I do not suggest this option... C) Get a streaming application for your desktop PC or Mac, which does on-the-fly video conversion between formats. "Plex Media Server" is the best example of this, and it's FREE for your computer (note you will need to buy the Plex player app for your phone: it's ten bucks). Other server choices are "PS3 Media Server", "XBMC", and more you could Google for. I use option C. My Plex server is an old Mac Mini hooked up to my TV. I bought the Plex app for my iPad and iPhone. I can wirelessly watch videos on any device in my home, or when I travel (you can download the video to your iPhone, if you have space. Or you can remotely connect to your home computer, assuming your computer is kept powered on).



    Can I use USB Hub to connected to 1tb hard drives together ?? Customers are chatting about this View conversation
    A: short answer: no. both drives will not be connected together. but technically yes, both can be connected to the device provided you have a multi-port hub with adequate power, however the web gui will not allow you to access both drives simultaneously. you can only see one drive connected. seems like a software issue they could fix if deemed worthwhile.



    Can I use a portable power supply to supply the power to this unit instead of plugging it into the wall outlet? Customers are chatting about this View conversation
    A: This unit comes with a micro USB cable. You have to plug it in to a USB power source. If the portable power supply has a USB connection, then you are good to go.
