Creating your own WiFi network?

    Live needs an internet connection, as that's how the previews are shared.

    However, you can wirelessly tether without an internet connection by connecting the workstation to the camera as a network access point.

    You could also consider using a 5G router if you need Live functionality. Maybe let us know a little bit more about the environment you are working in and we can advise more precisely?

    Hi Jack, thanks for your feedback! I had a client shoot where I was counting on using the Wifi in the venue, however there was no functional internet connection. I tried to use my phone, but did not succeed to establish a reliable connection - so I had to go on without the Live functionality.

    I was wondering if I should invest in equipment to avoid such situations in the future ie. creating my own reliable network on location - with a router or phone?

    So I wanted to know if someone had experience doing so and if yes what equipment are you using for?
    I figured you could use your phone too so I would love to know if that provides a reliable enough connection for a commercial shoot? Would you use your phone in a professional setting to establish wireless tethering + Live sharing?

    Thank you, Aron
