Excerpt: Cheapest and best alternative to the camranger. It gives me the functionality that I needed and couldn't be happier. A little bit tricky when hacking the device, but once you get it right...the fun starts!
Summary: Used with a Canon 60D. Needed some a faster time to process when you're doing photography work alone without assistance. This speeds the process up with the DSLR Controller app for Android/iOS. Synced to a Galaxy Note 3. Avg around 30ft from router with good latency. This router is very easy to re-flash to Mfg Spec if you are willing to read and research.
Pros: Best Mobile Router for different purposes for simple networking hotspot sharing and even photography with a smartphone with the DSLR Controller App.
Excerpt: I bought this to use with the DSLRController app on my tablet. It enables me to do wireless (WiFi) control of my Canon EOS bodies from my tablet. It requires flashing a new firmware in this router, which works fine since it's an open-source router. I haven't used it enough yet to get a feel for its battery life, but since it can be powered with a USB cable, that's largely irrelevant.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Fast Connection Speed, Reliable connection
Excerpt: I had a problem with my wireless and could not get a good signal. Came into the NY store explained my problem and your sales person was GREAT... Told me all about this router and it did exactly what he said. Should not have gone any where else... Thank you all for being B&H....
Excerpt: This is a great little router (a little slow otherwise would have given it 5 stars). I am using it with qdslrdashboard and my iPhone 6 to control my Nikon camera wirelessly. You must download and install the DDSERVER OpenWrt firmware (this is permanent!!!) and then you can wirelessly control your Nikon or Canon camera from you iOS or Android device....
Excerpt: qDslrdashboard (android free and iPad ~$ ) on iPad and openWRT firmware with dd server on TL-MR3040 is a very good wireless remote for older Nikon dslr. B&H service as usual, perfect. Very satisfied.
Summary: I have not been this excited about something for quite a while. I have been wanting, not needing a CamRanger for a while but I could not digest the $299+ price tag. Really, I just wanted something to review photos while I am in the field and frame up shots away from the camera. I am not a super computer user but I got this router, followed the instruction on the youtube video suggested in this link: http://dslrdashboard.info/tp-link-mr3040-openwrt-flash/ and got the...
Alternative to CamRanger! Works with iOS and Nikon flawlessly

Summary: Bought to control my Nikon over wifi on my Iphone 6 plus via Dslrcontroller app ($9). So for $50 I can control my Nikon over wifi or pay $300 for a CamRanger wich is the exact same thing with custom software. Within a few minutes I was able to update the custom firmware on Dslrcontroller and get this working on iOS. It is great to have the ability to remote control my camera for this price point.
