    The Rocket m5 itself can act as an access point, which is what we used.

    We do not have the GPS version, but I imagine that it doesn't provide any benefit for range.

    Here is our tutorial for configuring Clip to work with the Rocket m5:

    How are you guys going to mount your iPads? is there an attachment to put it on a c-stand or pick stand? can you mount it on a secraft transmitter tray?

    Velcro with a self adhesive back and glue it to the iPad ... should do the trick

    Reminds me of a guy's forum signature (on another forum).

    Hi guys,
    i´ve happily received my Clip and am currently testing the unit with my 5D3. The strange thing is: I do have an ipadRetina (ipad4) and an ipadMini. On one I get an input of 1080i50 on the other 480p - same setup, just pressing the switch feed button in the teraclip app.
    Basically both look the same - rather 480p - not really usable for focus pulling (compared to my smallHD DP6 - without focus assist!!!).
    Video quality is set to max - one shows 8, the other 5. Signal quality (wifi) is at max.
    Am I doing something wrong?
    Thanks in advance for your feedback!

    Mine is sitting in a box on my desk waiting for a few free hours to get it going. I've tried the Clip by itself, and it's pretty cool.

    Has anyone tried using a Apple Airport Extreme as a network extender - I know Michael mentioned it a few pages back.

    I spoke with someone last week that was seeing 300meters with the Airport Extremeo_O

    Should I run to Best Buy to see if he's wrong? Also, wondering if adding a better 5.8 antenna on the Clip (ie: Bluebeam) would offer improvement?

    I have an Airport Extreme, waiting for the Clip to arrive to give it a shot! I have some Bluebeam antennas as well...

    Maybe someone can offer some advice or pointers out there, but I am having absolutely terrible results with the clip and I am at a loss as to what to try. I understand you need a router or something to achieve the best range/performance, but if I even walk into the other room, or am 15ft+ away out side, line of sight, I either get 3+seconds of delay, or the 'connecting screen' What gives? I'm using an Ipad 4 and have the clip hooked up to my scarlet, set to output 720.

    The odd thing is, that I will still have two, or even full wifi reception bars.... I've tried every combo of settings for the buffer and quality.. Reset to factory defaults, tried different frequencies and channels. Anyone know anything? I'm going to call teradek on monday to see if they can offer any advice.
