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: 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...

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.
Summary: A lot of people bough this portable router to use as a "hack" to use on there DSLR and a wireless tether device, I am one of them. I am glad that I found out about this hack. After doing a lot of research about this, it seems that this is the same hardware as the Camranger that sells for $300. A lot of reviews are from Canon user. I am a Nikon user and I can confirm that this works with the D800e and the Samsung Tab Pro 8.4 tab.
Summary: I am using this device as a wireless device from my Canon DSLR camera so I can control it remotely. It will have other uses when I begin traveling again. It does everything it says it will do..and more.
Summary: I bought this router to use as a remote interface for my Canon 60D camera. With a bit of geeky tweaking, it works perfectly. This $35 router replaced a $300 dedicated router based upon the same platform. It works just the way it is supposed to.

Summary: When I received this product I was impressed by the quality of the packaging. If I didn't know better, I would have thought this was an Apple product. It hooked up and worked great right out of the box. Based on the quality of the packaging, I would buy more TP-Link products because if they put this much thought into their packaging, their products must be designed well too.

Summary: As I was searching for cheaper solution than CamRanger ($300) for my D800, I found this TPlink, which look similar to what CamRanger used. After searching on Google, find this increadible free software called dslrdashboard. I only need to flash the firmware avaiable free from their website. Download the free app from Google play, and using my Samsung Galaxy S5, it works perfectly. Both Photo and Video Function is available.
