TP-LINK's TL-MR3040 is a truly mobile wireless networking platform that when paired with a 3G USB modem, is able to broadcast a wireless signal at up to 150Mbps around a room, creating a mobile office or entertainment network for up to five devices to access the Internet simultaneously. The device is the ideal travel companion, with pocket-sized dimensions and powered by its own powerful internal 2000mAh battery, users can work or play for hours on end. The device is also incredibly easy to use, allowing users to rapidly set up an Internet connected wireless network in as little time as it takes to plug in their 3G USB router or WAN cable and when finished, simply place the device back in their pockets.

To do it yourself, just follow the instructions at qDSLRDashboard or, alternately, DSLRController if you're an android user. Be careful - each app has its own firmware and they are not compatible with each other. I chose DSLRDashboard because of the iOS, Android, Mac and PC apps. It gives me a lot of flexibility.
Btw, the PC and Mac apps are free. The iOS and Android are about $10. Seriously, folks, if you get this working and use it (even on the PC or a Mac), buy one of the mobile apps just to support the developer. He's obviously earned it with the effort that has gone into this! It took a bit of tinkering and trial and error, but once working, it works very well. Here are a few hints to help the process...
1) once you've flashed the new firmware and connected your pc to the TP-Link wifi, click the NETWORK button to connect in DSLRDashboard. I kept clicking the canon button to connect which didn't work. Click network and it should connect.
2) if you are using the mobile app and make any changes to the TP Link router for any reason (settings, etc), you should probably kill the app and restart it to avoid errors and the such.
3) I read a number of complaints about not being able to attach the TP to your hot shoe. I went down to Ace hardware and bought a 1/4-20 receiver, drilled a 3/8" hole in the TP bottom plate (it comes off easily to reveal the battery), and pushed the receiver through the hole. Just for overkill, I also cut off the edges of the receiver to fit inside the battery panel grooves so that it won't rotate when tightening and loosening. Now, I have a 1/4-20 receiver sticking out the bottom that I can use for a hot shoe ball joint adapter. See pics (I left a second receiver in the pic to show the whole piece)...
4) my biggest issue was having to reconnect my phone to wifi (and therefore disconnect from the TP) to post or send a photo (or even check email for that matter). As it turns out, you can get an iPhone to keep its cell connection active while connected to wifi by giving the wifi connection a static IP address. It's easy...
A. Settings | Wi-Fi
B. Click the info link next to the TP router name - you need to have already connected to it before
C. Under IP address, click the "Static" button
D. Give the connection a static address (I used 192.168.1.115 because that had been assigned to my phone by dhcp earlier)
E. Give the connection a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0
F. When you connect the iPhone to the TP, you'll see that it has no internet on the connection. You'll maintain your 3G/4G connection as well as the wifi connection to the TP. Setup Dropbox photo upload (or Amazon, iCloud, whatever) and every pic you take gets transferred. Just be careful of your data plan.
Hope the extra info helped. I'll come back and edit if I come across any other tips.
It came in a nice box and shrink wrapped. Probably one of the nicer packaging I've seen from TP-Link. It came with a charger (regular 1.0A which I used my fast 2.0A charger bought here) and a micro-USB cable (power is fed through it like regular Android plug).
I loaded the new firmware on the DSLR Controller's site since mine was 2.4 version (there are two versions, read the site very carefully) and the setup took less than 10 minutes from start to finish. Do be careful and make sure your tablet supports it as I wasn't paying attention and ended up getting the Galaxy Tab 4 which the 7" is not compatible. Works perfectly fine with the LG G3 I have.
The signal is strong enough and I can walk around with the camera now remotely connected. DSLR Controller itself is a sweet app so definitely get it if you're looking to control just about every aspect of the camera.
As far as the accessories I ended up getting the bike mount smartphone mount with a short 1-foot mini USB cable that gets attached to the tripod & monopod.
I'm very happy I've finally made this move! A tablet would be a nice touch but of course having a small phone won't kill my workflow either. I "may" get a tablet but for now I'm happy with this setup.
The downloading and setup were a little intimidating at first, but once I followed the instructions step-by-step it worked as described. Only exception being the name of the wireless network was something else (instead of "DSLRController", it was named "DDServerAP").
Not sure how long this thing will last or hold up over time, but initially I am extremely impressed especially at this price point.
