    Agree that this is a pretty extreme solution if all one needs is simple on camera rig monitoring. Too bulky with two converters and multiple power supply connections.

    Excellent solution. I tried infrastructure mode and had a really good connection using my local server. Also, using a lollipop antenna. Ordered a portable router and I'll try that solution.
