Summary: Wow!! I had come close everal times to picking up Nikon's WT5a or a Camranger... The while reading reviews of the camranger I came across a comment comparing it to the MR3040. This little beast is AMAZING.
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!
Excellent battery for size, durable, and quality wireless router!

Summary: I bought the TP-LINK TL-MR3040 portable wireless router solely to set up a PIRATE BOX. I don't know if anyone here has heard of the pirate box or purchased one of these for the sole purpose of setting up a Pirate Box, but I highly recommend it!
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.
Pros: Best Mobile Router for different purposes for simple networking hotspot sharing and even photography with a smartphone with the DSLR Controller App.
