So much for Eye-Fi

The Eye-Fi card sounded like a good idea.  And it works exactly as Eye-Fi advertises, but it won’t work for what I was hoping for it to do.  To log into the Eye-Fi setup, it requires online access.

I tried to get around it.  Once I had everything set up I unplugged the Internet from my router.  It just didn’t seem to want to work.  I’m sure I can eventually make it work, but if I am having such difficulties trying to get it to work for the purpose of volume photography it makes me wonder if it’s worth the trouble.

    They describe how to set up and Eye-Fi Card with a travel WAP as well. http://photojojo.com/uncut/2007/11/07/maximize-your-eye-fi-range-for-event-shooting/

  2. I checked this out and it looks great! I was hoping to come up with something very easy to set up. I’ll put a little more time to see if I can get something to work. I have some time now in between trade shows.
