It's because you ignored user manual.
Good to see that the Rwandan extremists have turned their hands to the purposes of good.
Its for sharing a usb connected storage device not for creating a wireless acess point for a network. The ethernet point is incase you want to share through a hardwired network as opposed to have a seperate wireless network hence why the switch is LAN or WIFI not a WIFI on/off switch.
probably better than the talktalk 'super' router
I connected mine to a 2.5" hard disk. I use it to share movies through WiFi. It can connect to my home network through WiFi or Ethernet and broadcasts a second Wireless ID as well. I can just pick it up and use in the car to stream movies to an Ipad. It just needs 2 USB Power supplies. It can also be used as a wired or wireless range extender at home or in hotels etc. A very useful device. No WiFi dropouts and the instructions are simple - a simple wizard sets the thing up in no time.
Not that hot a deal. I paid £15.99 with free delivery from Amazon on 10th August (not prime)
sandisk make a better one
I use one of these

Shares a drive on the network via the usb, works as a repeater, and works as a router ( althout ive never used it as a main router) signal surpasses the range on my Netgear which is strange.
Supports OpenWRT !!

I have the HT-TM03 - it has a built in battery. Won't travel without it!

There are a few cheap travel routers <£20

£10 Nexx3020 - ebay
£6.50 "Mini 3g/4g router" A5-V11 - ebay
gl-inet ~$30 on ebay.com and cheaper on aliexpress.
The old 6416a or the new ar-150

http://www.gl-inet.com/ar-specifications/

I'm waiting for the new AR-150 to be delivered.

From what I've read, the mini 3g/4g ones are a little flaky with wifi and run hot. The nexx seems OK but recent builds of openWRT have some problems flashing apparently. GL-inet comes with a customised build of openWRT out of the box and the new version has an external antenna option.

Installing OpenWRT you can. Not sure if out of the box you will be able to though.

​TPLink WR701N also. Around a tenner on eBay, supports WRT firmwares and such.
Bought one from Amazon for £14.99 about a year ago and love it. Gave it a static ip and hooked up a 2tb hard drive and use it as a makeshift NAS. My dnla devices connect to it straight away as well.
I have Kingston g2 mobilite mobile companion is this one quite similar?

So it connects to an existing network instead of creating one?

It will connect through an existing network via the ethernet port but also has the option of creating its own wifi network if you want it to.
Hi all... I have just got this little beauty.. Trying to connect this to my existing network via ethernet to use as a small nas/dlna device. Dont intend to use its wifi capability for now and just want it as an add on to my existing network.

Problem is that the devices on my existing network can see the connected Tripmate device but not able to see an services (DLNA/SAMBA) broadcasted by it nor am I able to ping the tripmate device from them. I have tried giving static IP etc but nothing seems to work. Latest firmware also installed.

Any suggestions or config info would be highly appreciated. Thanks.

Yes I did solved it. The problem is with the latest firmware (.026) which blocks the WAN port access from the local network side. If you leave Hootoo to the original firmware (think .018) it should be ok. If you have already updated like me, you need to go back to Hootoo and ask for an old firmware that will not block the WAN port.

Hope this helps.
