    Does it allow you to enter username/password on the captive portal of paid hotel wifi networks? It's not described anywhere. Customers are chatting about this View conversation
    A: The new models are supposed to have this already set, but since I had one of the first ones, I had to download the firmware to be able to enter the login information to get the HooToo to work on hotel networks.



    Can the ethernet port be used as a lan port to access the internet via a wireless bridge? essentially function as an ethernet wifi adapter? Customers are chatting about this View conversation
    A: Nope. Specifically states that this is a WAN port only on product website. I tried it before I found that out, although this is not why I bought the product.



    Does this device have built-in internal storage? I believe a personal cloud would imply that but I don't see any info on that anywhere.. Customers are chatting about this View conversation
    A: The device uses a customer provided thumb drive for storage.



    can i use my cell phone's internet connection to tether this and make it wifi hotspot ? Customers are chatting about this View conversation
    A: Yes, but you'd be repeating what your already doing since your phone would have to be in WiFi hotspot mode anyway.



    Is there an alternate app (iOS and/or Android) that the HooToo app? Customers are chatting about this View conversation
    A: You can use any other app that will browse network locations. I personally have used ES File Explorer, I know there are others.
