Aluratek battery-powered wireless router

Postby TheBrew » Fri Jun 18, 2010 8:08 am

A ShutterSnitch user wrote this to me - good stuff and I thought it needed to be shared:

"To get around the iPad's inability to create "ad hoc" networks, I bought a little Aluratek battery-powered wireless router (about US $ 90) and carry it in a pocket of my camera bag. This lets me network all my devices (Eye-Fi card, WT-4, iPad, sometimes a laptop) wherever I'm photographing. Using the router actually is more convenient than using a public WiFi network -- I have pre-configured it for all my devices, so I never need to worry about changing any settings."

I'm not sure. But I don't think so.

I'd be interested in how to set this up. Does anyone have any advice? The video does not explain
if a 3g connection is needed
Thank you in advance.

you need a 3G USB stick (with active data plan) in order to use it.

Cool option, but there are today wifi gateways that do the same and have the 3G build in. Might be a better option.

Most portable routers like that work fine with out a data modem. I do not know about that particular one, but I can tell you that the Cradlepoint routers work fine with out internet connection and I have used Eye-Fi Cards over many of them with out a data connection, but not ShutterSnitch though.

There is a great video for setting up the router here

Not sure who did it, but it's very informative. I am waiting on my router to set it up. I shoot on location a lot and it will be very helpful

You don't need 3g. I have one and it works great without it.
