Use two WiFi adapters with GoPro

Beginning with v6.42.1214, If you are using a GoPro with dslrBooth, we highly recommend using two WiFi adapters. All computers will only have one internal Wifi adapter. You will need to purchase an additional USB WiFi adapter and use it for a more reliable and faster connection to the GoPro.

Recommended USB WiFi Adapter

Recommended Adapter: Buy TP-Link AC1300 WiFi Adapter (T3U)
The TP-Link AC6000 Adapter (T2U) will not work. The GoPro is very picky with Wi-Fi cards that we highly recommend using the Wi-Fi adapter above.

If you use just one Wi-Fi adapter, dslrBooth will need to switch back and forth between connecting to your internet connection and connecting to the GoPro. This is not ideal as the constant connection and disconnection might cause issues due to Wi-Fi interference or lower quality Wi-Fi adapters.

With two Wi-Fi adapters, dslrBooth will use the first adapter to connect to the internet and the second one to connect to your GoPro. Do not connect to the internet with Wi-Fi 2. dslrBooth will manage your Wi-Fi connections directly so you never need to connect and disconnect to any networks during your event.

Wired Connection to Internet

Another option that is less popular however possible in dslrBooth is to use a wired connection to the internet and a wireless WiFi adapter for connecting to the GoPro.
